REU Site: Interdisciplinary Program in
High Performance Computing

We are excited to host this unique Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Site in scientific, parallel, and statistical computing, all extremely hot areas of current research. Participants will work in teams on projects brought in by high caliber researchers from academia and industry, closely supported by experienced graduate students and faculty members in collaboration with the Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Consulting. The participants will acquire the skills necessary to perform hands-on high performance computing on a state-of-the-art distributed-memory cluster in the UMBC High Performance Computing Facility.

For the Summer 2015 program, see the Program Details and Detailed Schedule for more information, and apply using the Online Application. The program is growing, and we extended the deadline to March 15, 2015! The tabs for the past programs from 2010 to 2014 have a wealth of information to get a good idea of the activities of the program, in particular see the webpage on the Projects, Special Events, and the Photo Albums there. This description tries to give the most realistic and concrete impression of the activities throughout the program from a student perspective. We even have our own YouTube Movie with opening remarks by our university president and testimonials from two 2010 participants that the UMBC New Media studio graciously produced for us.
