Irvine, June 28, 2016 — Ten undergraduate students have been selected to participate in the 2016 SURF- IoT(Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship in the Internet of Things). The program, in its twelfth year, is a 10-week program for UCI undergraduates, designed to immerse students in research and applications related to IoT.
The program, co-sponsored by UCI’s Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) and Calit2, provides students with a unique experience. Each student has the guidance of a UCI faculty mentor, along with the opportunity to gain experience and advanced training in state-of-the-art facilities and techniques.
Fellows will also attend a series of seminars to help enhance knowledge and dialogue about telecommunications and information technology systems and applications. At the conclusion of the program students will present their research findings at a SURF-IoT Symposium.
