MSU selected as site for NSF undergrad research experience in computational and data science

Michigan State University has been selected as a site for a National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates program. The $360,000 grant runs for three years, beginning Aug. 1, 2016. The first cohort of twelve students will participate in the 10-week program beginning summer 2017. Through a program called iCER Advanced Computational Research Experience for Students, or iCER ACRES, MSU’s Institute for CyberEnabled Research, in collaboration with MSU’s Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering, will offer summer opportunities for undergraduates with an interest in computational and data science research. “The iCER ACRES program is ideal for students who are looking for highly specialized, hands-on experience in computational research,” said Kennie Merz, the director of iCER. “The ability to effectively solve problems on high-performance computational resources is an area of…
