Research Experiences for Undergraduates in

Intelligent Environments for Healthy Living and Aging in Place*

Summer 2014







Priority Application Deadline: March 15

Final Application Deadline: March 29

Eight research assistantships are currently available for qualified undergraduate sophomore, junior and senior computer science and engineering students to participate in research in the field of intelligent environments for health and aging. The program will be conducted at an NSF supported REU Site in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington (CSE@UTA). The student participants will investigate problems related to sensor systems, intelligent data management, smart care support, unintrusive health monitoring, and assistance technologies in the context of non-invasive technologies for health self-management and for aging-in-place. During this summer, each student will be working in a multi-disciplinary setting under the supervision of Computer Science and Nursing faculty and in collaboration with graduate and undergraduate students. The projects will be performed in the larger context of a multi-disciplinary research project, SmartCare, aimed at designing software and hardware systems to enhance care, support and encourage healthy living, facilitate remote health monitoring and diagnosis, improve the quality of life for persons with disabilities or chronic conditions, and facilitate aging-in-place.

Participants will receive a stipend of $5000 for the 10 week summer program plus $1500 for subsistence to cover the costs of housing and food. In addition, non-UTA participants will receive a travel supplement of $600.
