Student application deadline extended for DUIRI Spring 2023 projects
DUIRI has extended the student application deadline for the below Spring 2023 projects. Students can visit the DUIRI website to learn more about these projects and apply through Nov. 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 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. The target date for notifying students of their acceptance is Nov. 22. Students selected for 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 and pursuing the agreed-upon steps, 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.
