Research Experience for Undergraduates in Big Data Security and Privacy

NSF REU Site in Big Data Security and Privacy @ Cal Poly Pomona

Our Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program engages undergraduate students in big data security and privacy research,in the intersection of big data and security/privacy with an emphasis on two aspects: (a) Security and Privacy of Big Data, Model and Platform and (b) Big Data Intelligence for Security. This program provides students with an immersive research environment and we teach students research skills through training sessions, hands-on experiments and interactions with experienced researchers. The interdisciplinary nature of this site exposes students to different perspectives of big data security, from theory to application. The faculty members have exceptional expertise in cybersecurity research enabling them to provide high quality REU activities.

In addition to research activities, various professional career development activities are well planned for students, including presenting their research work at multiple symposia and seminars, and interacting with senior researchers and peers in Invited Speaker Series and on their field trip to research labs.

This REU site is supported by National Science Foundation (NSF). We welcome application and participation from all students.
