Abstract

Arizona State University (ASU) established an NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) site to embed students in research projects related to integrated sensor and signal processing systems. The program includes both sensor hardware and algorithm/software design for a variety of applications including health monitoring. The site was funded in February 2017 and the Co-PIs recruited nine students from different universities and community colleges to spend the summer of 2017 in research laboratories at ASU. The program included structured training with modules in sensor design, signal processing, and machine learning. Cross-cutting training included research ethics, IEEE manuscript development, and building presentation skills. Nine undergraduate research projects were launched and the program went through an assessment by an independent evaluator. This paper describes the REU activities, modules, training, projects, and their assessment.
