Research on the Security of Mobile Devices and Wireless Networks
Interested in a paid summer research internship at New York Tech?
New York Tech's 10-week summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program provides opportunities for ten motivated and talented undergraduate students to collaborate with our faculty and graduate students in research on methods of securing mobile devices and wireless networks using both software and hardware approaches. Women and minority students are strongly encouraged to apply.
Undergraduates will have access to the university's state-of-the-art research facilities and gain valuable hands-on research experiences using network testbeds to simulate malware and attacks on mobile devices and wireless networks, efficient privacy-preserving authentication methods with novel biometrics for medical devices and smartphones, emotions of populations vulnerable to phishing, and secure sharing of wireless spectrum for body-area networks and connected vehicles.
The research projects require a full-time commitment from participating students (five days a week/40 hours per week). Students are not allowed to work while participating in the program. In conjunction with the requirements of the faculty advisors, all participants are required to submit a research paper, produce a research poster, and make a final presentation describing their work.
Participating students will get $6,000 stipend, $600 travel allowance, $3,000 housing (estimated) and $24/day (estimated) food allowance PLUS research experiences, grad school preparation, networking/mentoring opportunities, and visits to state-of-the-art labs, security centers, and corporations.
Citizen or permanent resident of the United States.
Enrolled full time at a college or university.
Sophomore to senior academic standing with no B.A. or B.S. degree completed.
Cumulative average of 3.2 or better.
Show potential for success, even with limited access to graduate research or other preparatory opportunities, particularly as it relates to educational achievement while overcoming obstacles, including, but not limited to: ability, economic, social, or educational challenges.
As part of the application form, you will be asked to upload the following:
Statement of purpose (500–600 words), including a brief introduction of yourself and your work experience, projects or research you have done as an undergraduate, and NYIT REU projects you are interested in.
An official copy of your current academic transcript mailed to the address below:
New York Tech REU Program New York Institute of Technology 1855 Broadway EGGC 803A New York, NY, 10023
Alternatively, the recommendation letters can also be e-mailed to email@example.com. A notification of acceptance will be emailed to you after the selection process is completed.
