2013 Program Dates:
May 30 – August 2, 2013
This REU program is sponsored by the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University. WSU is located in Pullman, Washington, a small town in the Palouse region of Eastern Washington. The program consists of 10 weeks working with top research professors and graduate students at WSU. During this time, REU participants will assist in designing smart environments. In addition to taking a 3-hour research methods course, participants will perform hands-on research on topics including design of sensor networks, middleware, machine learning algorithms, and automation algorithms, and will investigate applications of smart environments to health monitoring and energy conservation. Most research ideas will be tested using two on-campus smart environments, and students will present their research results in a poster session at the end of the ten week period. Travel support is available for students who submit their work to a research-related conference.
This WSU/EECS REU program is funded by National Science Foundation grant IIS-0647705.
