Spring 2023: Student Application Deadline Extended

DUIRI has extended the student application deadline for select spring 2023 projects. Students can apply to the following projects through NOVEMBER 9.


  • Investigating Explainability of ML Model Decisions for Injury Surveillance
  • Transforming Patient Health Information Exchange with Blockchain Technology
  • Towards Prediction of A User's Identity from Missing Biometric Data from IoT Devices and Understanding Associated Risks
  • Semiconductors Supply Chain: Challenges and Lessons Learned
  • Biowall for WL Public Library
  • Investigation of processability and mechanical properties of compression molding recycled fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite
  • Thermal Conduction in Advanced Composites for Electronics Packaging
  • Renewable Energy and Water Technologies

The Discovery Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Research Internship (DUIRI) has posted new research projects for Spring 2023. The DUIRI program provides opportunities for undergraduate students to work with faculty on cutting-edge research in the areas of global security, health, and sustainability. Here, solutions will be researched by combining faculty and students with two or more distinct disciplinary strengths in each faculty-defined project.

Faculty project supervisors will review all eligible student applications before making final selections. Students will be notified of their acceptance after that date, with a target of November 22.

Students selected this spring will be responsible for pursuing their research projects. Students will start their project by developing a learning contract with the faculty project supervisor and mentor, pursuing the agreed-upon steps, finally culminating with a poster presentation in the Spring Undergraduate Research Conference (hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Research) and a one-page abstract/summary of their results. Assuming all requirements are met, each participating student will earn a $1,000 spring semester fellowship from the DUIRI program.
