The site of Research Experiences for Undergraduates – Emerging Issues in Cybersecurity is funded by NSF CISE which offers a ten-week summer research experience to a diverse group of undergraduate students. The site is hosted at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (New Mexico Tech). The 2019 program was from Tuesday, May 28 to Friday, August 2.
