REU in Collaborative Human Robot Interaction

The Department of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno is offering a NSF-supported 10-week Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in Collaborative Human-Robot Interaction (CHRI). The site will develop new autonomous robot capabilities and supporting network and data science technology to address real-world challenges of operating autonomous systems in hospital, clinic, home, and infrastructure environments.

In addition to participating in a hands-on orientation week, students will also participate in workshops on how to write an application for graduate school and how to write an application for a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship (GRF). Students will participate in a research project, prepare a written report on their project, and present to the University’s undergraduate research symposium.

Award Information:
* $5,000 stipend for 10 weeks
* On-campus housing provided
* Food allowance
* Round-trip travel expenses up to $800


The NSF Innovation Corps (I-Corps) is a set of activities and programs that prepare scientists and engineers to extend their focus beyond the laboratory and broadens the impact of select, NSF-funded, basic-research projects. The Center for Entrepreneurship and UNLV College of Engineering have recently earned the distinguished honor of becoming an NSF I-Corps site and was awarded a three-year, $255,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support site activities. As an NSF I-Corps site, the Center will incubate 15 to 25 projects a year. Faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, staff, and alumni are encouraged to apply to be part of this exciting program. 

Selected teams will receive up to $3,000 plus mentoring support for three months. Please visit the website below for more information about the application process.
