Calling All Future Computing Researchers: Learn More About UR2PhD!

February 28, 2024

Undergraduate students learning

Computing researchers shape the technology that is built and implemented in the U.S. and beyond. For GW Engineering undergraduate students looking to make their impact on the computing research field, check out the Computing Research Association’s Undergraduate Research to PhD (UR2PhD) Program! They are now accepting individual student applications for its summer 2024 session until March 29th! For 4-5 weeks, this undergraduate research training course will empower participants to develop and apply practical research skills while applying them to their specific research project. Students will learn to read and interpret research papers, conduct literature reviews, and analyze and present data.

If you can’t commit to the summer session, the UR2PhD program is also hosting monthly 1-hour computing research engagement and awareness workshops through May. During each workshop, students will engage with other computer computing researchers, expand their knowledge on the field, and participate in community-building activities. Each workshop will have its own format and structure but will culminate in addressing current research challenges and disciplines, available career paths and preparation, and opportunities for making meaningful contributions as a researcher. For more information about either of these opportunities, visit the UR2PhD overview!
