This Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) project is a ten week program where
students work collaboratively on a wide variety of computational science projects.
The Center for Computation & Technology (CCT) at Louisiana State University (LSU)
provides an ideal setting for the REU student to become familiar with interdisciplinary
research. With research groups exploring gravitational waves, complex emergent phenomena
in material science, or computational music, the participants work on cutting edge
research in Computational Sciences.
The students learn how to use the most current cyberinfrastructure tools with individually designed training sessions targeted to their specific degree of preparation. In addition, since most CCT research groups collaborate with international researchers, REU students are exposed to how international collaborations work.
This program involves nine students every summer. Each student receives a stipend
of $5,000, free housing in university dormitories, and up to $600 in travel expenses
to and from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
