30 Year Celebration of NSF REU in Computer Vision at UCF

National site for Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in Computer Vision has been funded by NSF for the last thirty years through a series of 12 grants starting in 1987 for total amount of $2.8 million. Every year ten undergraduates from all over the country participate this summer program at UCF.

During the last twenty nine years more than 290 undergraduate students from more than 68 different schools all over the U.S. have participated in this program. These undergraduates have co-authored more than 80 research papers (in reputed journals ike PAMI, PR, CVGIP, and conferences like ICCV, CVPR, ICPR). Approximately half of these participants have gone to graduate schools, fifteen students have written Honors in the Major Theses, several participants are now faculty members at different Universities, and several participants have started their own companies. This year also, ten more undergraduate students will participate in this program from across the U.S.
