UCSD undergraduates participate in collaborative studies abroad on cyberinfrastructure

Nine undergraduate students from the University of California, San Diego have arrived in Asia and Australia to conduct collaborative research on a wide variety of topics related to cyberinfrastructure. They were selected to participate in the first of a three-year program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and other organizations, to help prepare more U.S. engineers and scientists to work on international projects. As part of the Pacific Rim Undergraduate Experiences (PRIME) program, the students will work for nine weeks this summer at host research institutions in Osaka, Japan; Hsinchu and Taipei, Taiwan; and Melbourne, Australia.

The program is sponsored by the NSF's Office of International Science and Engineering, with additional support from its Division of Shared Cyberinfrastructure, and the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology [Cal-(IT)2] (www.calit2.net). PRIME provides students with an opportunity to participate in project-based international and collaborative research experiences that will better prepare them for future scientific endeavors, particularly in the context of a global workforce. The students all from UCSD's Jacobs School of Engineering are also expected to develop their research methods and skills, while achieving greater understanding of the cultural environments of their host countries.

Each undergraduate has a minimum of two mentors: one affiliated with UCSD, and another with the host institution. The host organizations are all connected to the Pacific Rim Applications and Grid Middleware Assembly (PRAGMA) collaborative program (www.pragma-grid.net).

Gabriele Wienhausen, founding provost of Sixth College and Cal-(IT)2's Education layer leader at UCSD, is one of three program coordinators for PRIME and is the principal investigator of the NSF award (http://prime.ucsd.edu/). She is joined by Linda Feldman, director of UCSD's Academic Internship Program, and Peter Arzberg
