NSF - REU in Sensing and Smart Systems at Florida Atlantic University

Exciting ‘Internet of Things’ Undergraduate Research Opportunity
NSF REU Site in Sensing and Smart Systems

Florida Atlantic University’s Institute for Sensing and Embedded Network Systems Engineering (I-SENSE) hosts an intensive summer research program in sensing and smart systems for talented undergraduate students across the country.

Closely related to the Internet of Things, smart systems represent an emerging class of distributed systems that provide real-time awareness of conditions, trends, and patterns to support improved decision-making, and often, automation. The on-campus research will focus on I-SENSE’s three main program areas: Infrastructure Systems, Marine and Environment and Health and Behavior.
