This NSF REU site in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Wright State University offers a ten week summer program that aims at providing a diverse group of motivated undergraduates with competitive research experiences in cybersecurity research. The goal of this program is:
- To develop students' confidence and capabilities of conducting independent research.
- To encourage and retain students for graduate studies.
- To motivate students to develop their career interest in cyber security.
A variety of projects will be offered in Network Security, Intrusion Detection, Wireless Sensor Network Security, Internet Malware Detection (Analysis and Mitigation), Software Reverse Engineering and Vulnerability Discovery and Privacy-Preserving Data Mining.
- It is a requirement of the NSF that all REU participants be citizens or permanent residents of the United States.
- Participants must be enrolled as undergraduates at the freshman, sophomore or junior level during the semester prior to attending the summer program.
- Applicants should be majoring in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Systems, Software Engineering, or related areas; students who seriously consider pursuing a graduate degree and/or career in Cyber Security research are particularly encouraged to apply.
- Applicants must have a research interest in Cyber Security, preferably with a GPA of 3.0 or higher. However, students with a strong research motivation and professional background (i.e. software development, reverse engineering, and etc.) but a relatively lower GPA are also encouraged to apply.
- Women, minorities, students from undergraduate institutions and students that have no or very limited Cyber Security research are strongly encouraged to apply.
- Review of applications will begin March 7, 2018 and will continue until all positions are filled.
- The notification will start from March 21, 2018.
- A student will decide whether to accept the offer within one week after he/she receives the offer.
