A unique Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) site was established at Arizona State University to address education and research problems in integrated sensor device and DSP algorithm design. The site will recruit and train nine undergraduate students each summer and engage them in research endeavors on the design of sensors including student training in mathematical methods for extracting information from sensor systems. This three year NSF REU site was established in January 2017 and admitted the first cohort of undergraduate students that started their research in late May 2017. The investigators along with a team of faculty advisors are supervising a series of multidisciplinary research projects in the design of integrated sensor systems. In addition to planned projects, the faculty leaders of this program developed and deployed a series of video-streamed modules on sensor device design and machine learning algorithms. The program engaged colleges across the country to broaden participation. The REU research emphasizes STEM related problems associated with sensor applications in signal processing, internet of things, and health monitoring. The nine projects in 2017 were selected to embed REU students in tasks whose focus is to design sensors and interpret data from sensors by studying and programming appropriate machine learning algorithms and sensor fusion methods. The paper will describe all the technical details of the research activities. The paper will also include an independent assessment of the projects, training and overall program.
