CCR has an on-going program that provides students with advanced
training in software engineering and computational science while
employing them to work on a wide range of active research projects.
Students not only gain valuable experience working in a
state-of-the-art research environment as part of a team, often
applying knowledge in their chosen fields, but also utilize new
technologies, including advanced software engineering, database
design, parallel computing, and interface development. Over
the summer, students also take part in a series of specialized
workshops that expose them to many useful topics ranging from basic
Unix command line tools and debugging techniques, to urban
visualization and databases. These topics, often outside of
the students’ area of expertise, are designed to introduce
them to advanced computational methods. The end of the summer
culminates with a short presentation by each student describing the
research project they worked on and their role in it.

Funding to support this program comes from several sources, including the NSF Research Experience for Undergraduate program, on-going research grants, and internal CCR funds.
