CSE and ECE Hosts Research Experience for Undergraduates Program

The Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) and Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Departments hosted a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program with the theme of “Trustable Embedded Systems Security Research” this past summer. The National Science Foundation sponsored the REU program that hosted 11 undergraduate students from 10 U.S. universities. It lasted for 10 weeks and culminated with a workshop-style final presentation by each REU student on August 2, 2019. The students, supervised by with their faculty mentors, worked on a wide range of research topics on embedded system security and trustable computing. They attended regular professional workshops on improving communication, writing, and presentation skills. Most REU students participated in weekly reading group meetings to learn about state-of-the-art research papers with graduate students. They also attended the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Conference on Communications and Network Security in Washington DC. Dr. Bing Wang was the main organizer of the program and 10 faculty members from both CSE and ECE Departments supervised the REU students.
