|Description:||The George E. Brown, Jr. Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) is a network of experimental sites across the country designed to enhance engineers' and scientists' potential for discovery and collaboration. The sites use a cyberinfrastructure to collect, store and visualize high volumes of data and access earthquake engineering simulation software using ultra-high-speed Internet2 connections.
The NEESreu is a dynamic 10-week summer research program for upper division undergraduate students interested in civil engineering, computer science/engineering, seismic risk mitigation, or engineering education. Each participant will be assigned to an individual project that contributes to the goals of an existing NEES research project or to development of cyberinfrastructure tools and/or educational modules. Students will be placed at one of eight NEES research labs.
|Benefits:||Travel to NEES Annual Meeting and Young Researcher Symposium
|Additional Information:||Students will work with NEES researchers, attend virtual trainings with other NEESreu interns, and participate in enrichment activities including an orientation session at the NEES Annual Meeting in Boston and the Young Researchers Symposium at Stanford University the end of the summer.
Video conferencing and meetings using virtual world technology will be held to further the cohort experience with fellow NEESreu students at the various research sites. Mentors will include university faculty, researchers, and graduate students.
