Undergraduate Research


Summer Research: Every summer we form a new undergraduate mobile computing research group whose focus is to learn advanced mobile computing technologies, and to engage in serious research activities that lead to publications in top computer science venues. Topics include: programming wearables and smartphones, and machine learning. [Summer'15] [Summer'16] [PerIoT'17]

UNC Mobile

Advanced UG Course: An advanced 500-level mobile computing systems course is offered every spring that covers the basics of mobile applications, OS, networks, and embedded sensor systems. Android and Arduino are used as the study/programming platforms. The course is taken by 50+ undergraduate students (CS and non-CS), and some graduate students. [Webpage]

Makerspace Network


Be-A-Maker (BeAM): Beam@Carolina is a network of makerspaces where the UNC community can come together in the design and making of physical objects for education, research, entrepreneurship and recreation. We offer open studios, training workshops, host classes and group activities in spaces equipped with technologies like 3D printing, wood and metalworking shops. [BeAM]

Beyond Computer Science


Carolina Health Informatics Program (CHIP): The Carolina Health Informatics Program (CHIP) is an interdisciplinary research and training program that plays a key role in fulfilling UNC-Chapel Hill's commitment to improving human health through health informatics research, data sharing, development, and education.
