NSF-DoD REU Site: Advanced Technologies for Hypersonic, Propulsive, Energetic, and Reusable Platforms (HYPER) at the University of Central Florida (UCF).

Posted by Tim on March 10, 2023 in Networking, Paid Student Experience, Research Information and Opportunities, Student experience, Summer Research

HYPER addresses challenges in aerospace travel and energy production, advancing the fundamental knowledge needed to overcome technical barriers limiting hypersonic flight. The 10-week program will be held this summer from May 21st – July 29th, 2023. Participants will gain hands-on research training in challenges such as: utilizing advanced manufacturing techniques for high-value components, integrating in-site monitoring of stress-strain evolution, developing novel methods for improved internal cooling and heat transfer effectiveness, and mitigating flutter through advanced rotor dynamic control. Many of these challenges rely on approaches that cut across disciplines and research techniques.

We are actively recruiting a diverse group of participants from a variety of universities. These students will:

• Conduct hands-on research guided directly by a faculty mentor and their graduate student(s)

• Interact with a diverse multidisciplinary team of researchers

• Visit the NASA Kennedy Space Center and various aerospace companies

• Participate in professional development workshops

• Gain in-depth training on numerical simulation software ANSYS

• Prepare for graduate school and a research-based career

• Engage with other REU groups located at UCF

Each HYPER REU participant will receive a summer stipend of $6,000, on-campus housing, and a travel allowance to and from Orlando, Florida. To learn more about the program, please visit our website at or view the HYPER REU flyer (linked and pictured below).

The application deadline for HYPER is Sunday, April 3rd, 2023 at 11:59 PM ET. Prospective participants may apply at

The organizers of the program are Drs. Ali P. Gordon and Jeffrey L. Kauffman ( 


NSF Career Project

Posted by Tim on March 10, 2023 in Career Oportunities, Research Information and Opportunities, Summer Research

The NSF Career project is looking to recruit Honors College Students for research that includes Hands-on Experiments with Teams of Tiny Ground Robots and Drones!

The project focuses on programming tiny (palm sized) ground-based robots and aerial robots (aka drones), and performing experiments with them in a motion capture facility that tracks each robot individually. We can also use an overhead projector to project virtual maps and environments over which the robots will operate. The goal of this project is to test and validate various multi-robot and robot swarm applications such as area coverage, hazard localization, formation flight and multi-task completion. These algorithms are connected with real-world applications mainly in disaster response (e.g., flood response, finding skiers trapped under avalanche, search and rescue etc.), pollution clean-up and goods/material transportation. These small lab-scale experiments with the tiny robots will serve as a scaled down validation of how effective (aka efficient, fast, reliable) will be such multi-robot solutions in real-world applications. In corollary, we will also study the interactions of these teams of tiny robots with human supervisors that communicate with them through a computer game based interface. This UG research opportunity is part of a larger project funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF).

Students with URM background preferred, in order for the student(s) to get a stipend, totaling up to $8K over the year. Students with strong technical background and progress in the project will be also be eligible for a stipend of up to $8K over the year
