Irvine, July 29, 2016— The 2016 SURF- IoT(Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship in the Internet of Things) fellows met at Calit2 this week to mark the halfway point in the 10-week program. Students presented their individual projects, discussed their findings and answered questions about their work to date.

Ten students were selected this year to participate in SURF IoT. The program is in its twelfth year, and is designed to immerse students in research and applications related to IoT.

SURF IoT, co-sponsored by UCI’s Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) and Calit2, provides students with a unique learning 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 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 final research findings at a SURF-IoT Symposium.
