REU Data Science 

Risk and Human Activity
IUPUI Summer 2019
Data Science Research Experience for

Data science is a rapidly growing field due to increases in the volume and variety of data being generated. 


Graduates with skill sets at the intersection of mathematics, statistics, computing, data analysis, and data modeling are in high demand, both in industry and academia.  

We seek applications for Summer 2019 in the IUPUI REU in data science of risk and human activity. 

APPLY HERE   (Deadline Feb 15)

Risk and Human Activity
The REU program at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis provides eight undergraduate students from across the United States with the opportunity to conduct research on the data science of human activity. 
Students spend ten weeks during the summer working with IUPUI faculty on data science projects.  Recent projects have included applications such as crime forecasting, ambulance optimization, human mobility, the opioid crisis, and social networks.
Students also attend a data science bootcamp as part of the program that will provide training in the foundations of data science (statistics, machine learning, and software development).
Program details
Dates: June 3rd to August 9 2019
Eligibility: any undergrad student who is a United 
States Citizen or permanent resident
$5000 stipend and additional $2500 to cover meals
and housing
$400 travel expenses
Students entering their junior or senior year with
