Our Research Lab also looks for a high school student or a few students who have strong interest in computer science to work as a summer intern. The intern position is 8 weeks with 10 hours per week and $10 per hour. We prefer a student with some previous knowledge on computer programming experiences (such as Java, C, PHP, Java Script, etc).
These positions, as part of the educational outreach activities of some funded NSF projects to K-12 students, minority groups and local communities. To sustain the nation's economic and scientific leadership, the USA must attract students into engineering. The National Science Board reports that the undergraduate engineering enrollment declined 18% from 1983 to 1999 and then rebounded from 2000 to 2002 but is still 20,000 shy of the 1983 figure, despite a 12% increase in the nation's population and job market. The goal of this summer internship is to inspire and attract talented high school students to computer science field, by participating in an interesting programming project.
If you are interested to apply, please email your resume and a 1-page summer intern proposal to Prof. XiangYang Li with subject ˇ°Summer Internship Application, for Prof. XiangYang Liˇ±. If we see your background as a good fit, then we will contact you. We apologize that we will not be able to reply each of you, but we will announce here once the positions are filled.
