Undergraduate summer research: information technology at U. Illinois Urbana-Champaigne

The Information Trust Institute (ITI), a national leader in combining research and education with industrial outreach in trustworthy and secure information systems, invites undergraduates to apply for Undergraduate Research Internship awards for Summer 2010. Selected students will be supervised by ITI researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign who are leading experts in a number of information trust, information assurance, and cyber security research areas. 
Interns will work for 40 hours a week, including attendance at two weekly seminars. One of the weekly seminars will be a technical presentation from a University of Illinois faculty member; the other will be a presentation on ethics in the responsible conduct of information technology research and development. Other enrichment events will include sessions on preparing for graduate study and pursuing careers in engineering and computing. At the conclusion of the internship, each intern will present the summer's work at a poster session and write a technical paper describing his or her research accomplishments.
All interns will receive stipends and housing.

Eligibility: undergraduates currently enrolled, have completed some technical computing coursework

Application Deadline: Feb 1, 2010
