REU Site in Pervasive Computing for Smart Health, Safety, and Well-being
Our REU Site will host a diverse group of talented students from universities across the nation to engage in an intensive 9-week summer research experience. Through this program, students engage as part of a research community that focuses on designing pervasive computing systems that employ sensing, actuation, and data science to improve the health, safety, and well-being of the general public. In addition to addressing problems of broad societal importance, REU Site student projects have the potential to develop new algorithms and technologies that advance the state of the art in pervasive computing and its component areas of networking, computer vision, and data analytics. Projects are led by faculty with outstanding research credentials and extensive experience in mentoring undergraduate research projects. REU students will work closely with faculty mentors, graduate students, and fellow REU students.
REU Site participants receive:
- $5400 participation stipend
- $1080 food stipend
- Relocation travel to/from REU Site
- Housing on Temple University campus
- Research mentoring from experts in pervasive computing, computer vision, networking, and data science
We are particularly committed to broadening participation of underrepresented groups in computing, and strongly encourage applications from women and underrepresented minority students, students from institutions where research opportunities are limited, and applicants from minority and women’s institutions. Funded positions are limited to U.S. Citizens and permanent residents.
Applications for a virtual REU Site experience in Summer 2021 will open in early December!

This project is sponsored through the National Science Foundation under grant number CNS-1757533.
