Dear SCS grad students,
We are pleased to present to you the V unit (vision unit); an exciting new opportunity to apply your technology skills to address non-traditional problems dealing with society, development, and the environment. This internship/independent study opportunity encourages you to broaden your perspective of important challenges in technology research, and challenges you to develop innovative solutions that will benefit non-traditional groups/areas currently neglected by the major research funding sources. Completing a V unit will earn you academic credit, teach you to build a broader vision for challenges in technology research, and encourage you to gain greater perspective that will greatly benefit you in the future.
Manuela Veloso and Bernardine Dias will be coordinating this program. The requirements are as follows:
Several of you have already indicated an interest in participating in such a program. Hence, we will be organizing an informational session for any graduate student in SCS who is interested in participating in this program in the Spring 2005 semester, or the Summer of 2005. This will be a meeting to concretely discuss your ideas for projects and plan your participation in the V unit program. Here is the relevant information:
Date: Friday, October 15, 2004
If you are interested in participating in this program but cannot attend the meeting, please send email to Manuela Veloso (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Bernardine Dias (email@example.com) and arrange a meeting. We will be selecting V unit participants for the Spring and Summer within the next month.
