Cornell Bowers CIS expands summer research program to all majors

The Computer Science Undergraduate Research Program (CSURP), a popular initiative that allows computer science majors to gain valuable summer research experience, will now be known as the Bowers Undergraduate Research Experience (BURE) and will be open to all majors within the Cornell Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science.

BURE provides paid summer research opportunities that expose undergraduates to cutting-edge research with Cornell faculty, allowing them to develop new skills and gain insights into careers in research. Adrian Sampson, associate professor of computer science, founded the program in 2021. Now in its third year, faculty lead Justin Hsu, assistant professor of computer science, is overseeing BURE's expansion along with the Cornell Bowers CIS Research Team. 

Applications for summer 2023 are due Monday, March 27. 

“We are excited to expand this program so more students in Bowers CIS can engage in research with our world-class faculty," said Kavita Bala, dean of Cornell Bowers CIS.. “Open-ended problem solving in these research projects will allow students to explore their interests and deepen their skills."
