This site will record the internship of students at Fayetteville State University who are fortunate enough to be supported by Collaborative Research Experiences for Undergraduates (CREU). Two groups are active, one focusing on Robotics and the other on Human Tracking and Surveillance. This site will focus primarily on the Robotics group.
It will also feature the personal blog of intern Daphne Faircloth as she participates in this CREU-sponsored Robotics internship.
CREU is an undergraduate research program that provides research stipends to teams of students working on research projects under the guidance of a mentor at their home institutions. Students supported by CREU collaborate with each other and with their mentors during the academic year and, in some cases, the following summer. Students are strongly encouraged to present their CREU research at national or regional conferences.
The objective of the CREU program is to increase the number of women and underrepresented groups entering graduate studies in the fields of computer science and computer engineering by exposing them to the joy and potential of research.
