Robots for assisted living, novel methods for software testing, and ways to collate massive amounts of data from satellite images, were just some of the exciting student projects presented at the Cornell Bowers CIS Undergraduate Research Experience (BURE) symposium, held August 11 in Gates Hall.
The symposium served as the closing ceremony for BURE, a 10-week, paid summer research program open to all undergraduates affiliated with the Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science. The program matches interested students with a faculty advisor and gives them the opportunity to gain hands-on research experience. Each week, students also participate in a research skills seminar, a summer faculty talk, and peer mentoring activities.
“We're really happy to hear about what you’ve been working on this summer, and we hope you get a chance to hear from other students about what they've been doing as well,” said Justin Hsu, assistant professor of computer science and BURE’s faculty lead, as he welcomed students to the symposium.
