Summer REU Opportunities

1. The primary goal of this inter-disciplinary REU Site program is to expose ten high quality undergraduate students to advanced topics in analytics, data mining, and visualization techniques as applied to data from the education domain. Students will participate in projects with the central theme of improving instructional technology design, enhancing academic curricula and modeling learning experiences. This focus on education-centered analysis will provide the participating undergraduate students a deeper understanding of both general data mining techniques and a broader taste for educational design. This REU Site program will make it a priority to engage and recruit under-represented minorities and women to pursue multi-disciplinary careers that transcend computer science and educational sciences. Careful student-student and student-mentor(s) pairings, as well as opportunities for developing organically- formed partnerships will foster an inclusive academic culture.

Each candidate will receive a $5000 stipend for the ten-week duration. Lodging is provided at Mason dormitories. Meals are also covered at $25/day, and we will also cover some travel expenses to Mason.
