Through SCRF, UTA’s Computer Science and Engineering Department aims to encourage research experiences for students. The event is open to students at all levels. We especially encourage women and students from groups that are underrepresented in computing to apply. The underrepresented population includes Blacks and African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Native Pacific Islanders, women, and persons with disabilities. This event features research competition and student work exhibition, keynote, panels, mentoring activities, graduate program information tables, and industry partnership. Through these activities, we will:

  • Promote research projects pertinent and important to students’ lives and interests
  • Nourish a positive student community by creating welcoming physical and virtual spaces
  • Encourage professional behavior
  • Build student confidence and professional identity by providing feedback
