Welcome to 2014 REU Program at ECU

The Computer Science Department at East Carolina University will conduct a ten-week summer research program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) for ten undergraduates from May 27 to August 1, 2014. The focus is on "Software Testing: Foundations, Tools and Applications," We are searching for rising juniors or seniors from accredited undergraduate institutions who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents to participate this summer NSF REU program to conduct research with Computer Science faculty members. Applicants should have a strong academic record and preferably a proficiency in Java and automated software testing tools. Underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply, as well as those from academic institutions with limited research opportunities. Each selected participant will receive a $5,000 stipend, a housing allowance, and a travel reimbursement of up to $400.

Students will participate in workshops on software testing and develop basic research skills. We also will arrange field trips to visit our industry partners and ECU’s Brody School of Medicine. The experiences and skills that participating students are able to obtain in this program will have practical applicability to research in their future studies.

We are grateful to the NSF and the Department of Computer Science, the College of Technology and Computer Science, the Office of Sponsored Programs, and the Office of Undergraduate Research at ECU for providing support to this project.

The application deadline is March 15, 2014.
