We offer research experiences in all aspects of robotics, for students with backgrounds in computer science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, mathematics, physics, social science, or any closely related fields. Our students have pursued projects in a variety of areas of robotics that deal with the real world; from remote marine sensing, to building and controlling legged robots, to picking up and manipulating objects, to managing swarms of robots, and to how we can incorporate robots into our daily lives.
During our 10 week summer program students will work on specific research projects alongside graduate students and faculty, attend workshops to find out what graduate school and research is all about, learn how to apply for graduate student fellowships (such as the NSF GFRP), and enjoy the great Oregon outdoors through student-organized activities. All participants will receive a $5,000 stipend, plus a travel, housing, and food allowance sufficient to cover costs. Space has been reserved in student summer scholar dorm housing for REU participants from out of town that want to take advantage of it.
