The Department of Computing Sciences at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi will host an NSF REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program on applied computing research in unmanned aerial systems (UAS). The program offers a unique opportunity to undergraduate students nation-wide, including the students of under-represented groups, to participate in research in UAS and their applications. The objective of the program is to provide participants unique research experiences in a stimulating environment that will involve developing secure, autonomous UAS technology and using them for knowledge discovery. The focus of this REU is to seek solutions to facilitate collection, storage, and analysis of data on the coastal environment of the Gulf of Mexico, particularly in South Texas through developing algorithms and software systems.
Undergraduate student researchers will work on a team of two students guided by a faculty mentor. Approximately ten students will be supported for a 10-week program in summer.
