DHS - Integrative Research in Emerging Technologies Internship
In direct response to the prevalent economic gap that exists in high-tech career fields, the partnership established between the Universities Space Research Association, MSI STEM Research and Development Consortium, and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Office of University Programs (OUP) represents an opportunity to reach minority serving institutions, the broader academic community, industry, research institutes, and tribal communities to encourage participation among young scientists and engineers to work on emerging technologies including:
- Artificial Intelligence (AI)
- Quantum Information Science (QIS)
- Autonomous & Unmanned aircraft
- Internet of Things
The Integrative Research in Emerging Technologies for Department of Homeland Security Use Cases Program is designed to develop and retain talent by providing early exposure to emerging technology research and development projects. Through immersion in this program, postsecondary students will conduct advanced research in AI, QIS, and/or Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) utilizing advanced computational and flight research testbeds, supporting use cases for DHS S&T OUP stakeholders. Students possessing scientific and engineering backgrounds will be competitively selected and paired with seasoned mentors at USRA and at designated partner organizations to facilitate research aligned with one of these research topics.
