Summer research experience at DSU
Dakota State University is hosting the second round of a three-year Research Experiences for the Undergraduate (REU) project this summer on the Madison campus.
REU is a nine-week program offering funded by the National Science Foundation that gives undergraduate students from DSU and other institutions across the nation a competitive research experience in information assurance and security.
The program began in the summer of 2010 and will continue through 2012. Nine students, five from DSU and four from other institutions, are on campus to conduct research with active and experienced research faculty. The research activities are designed to help students improve their ability to formulate and solve a research problem and increase their scientific and social communication skills.
Students receive a total stipend of $4,140, reimbursement of travel expenses, paid housing and meals at DSU, and a free community center pass.
Dr. Dianziang Xu, Associate Professor, and Senior Researcher at the National Center of the Protection of the Financial Infrastructure at Dakota State University, runs the summer research project.
