|NSF Science & Technology Centers 2009 Summer Undergraduate Internship Programs||December 24, 2008|
The National Science Foundation Science and Technology Centers (STCs) offer paid summer internships at our seventeen centers, located at prestigious universities around the United States . These summer internships provide undergraduates an opportunity to conduct research in a graduate schoolsetting in the following fields: 1) biological sciences, 2) computer and information sciences, 3) engineering, 4) geosciences, and 5) mathematical and physical sciences.
These summer research opportunities are fully funded and are an excellent way to gain a competitive edge toward graduate school. The centers are currently accepting applications for the 2009 Summer Programs. Deadlines are rapidly approaching and I would like to encourage anyone interested to apply. For more information on participating Centers and their application process and deadlines please access our website at www.nsfstc.org.

|To the World Finals!|
Students from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering will be heading to Stockholm, Sweden, in spring 2009 to compete in the World Finals of the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest. The student team, WUSTL 1, comprised of Sean Fellows, Doug Li, and Aayush Munjal, earned the spot by taking 2nd Place at the ACM Mid-Central Regional Programming Contest held in early November.
CSE fielded two additional teams at the Mid-Central Regional: WUSTL-2, a rookie team, with members CJ Carey, Neil Munjal, and Gordon Sommers, also had a top-10 finish, taking 8th Place. Team WUSTL-0, with Walker Burgin, Nathaniel Roman, and David Ross, finished a very creditable 51st out of the 136 teams competing.
The 2009 World Finals in Stockholm will be hosted by KTH-The Royal Institute of Technology. A complete list of teams competing in the World Finals will be posted on the ACM-ICPC web page.
