DEXterns – Internship Program in the DEX Lab

Thank you for applying for the Internship Program with the DEX Lab at UNLV, which is called “DEXterns”. The DEXterns internship program consists of five modules based on around 16 weeks of timeframe. The five modules in the program are Welcome and Orientation, Literature Review, Project Focus, Report and Presentation, and Demo. The overall frameworks of the DEXterns is listed below.

  • Welcome and Orientation (1 week)
  • Project Focus – Phase 1 (2 weeks)
    • Literature Review; Annotation of research articles (Mendeley)
    • IRB if needed
  • Project Focus – Phase 2 (2 – 3 weeks)
    • Requirement analysis and design; Report and Presentation
  • Project Focus – Phase 3 (3 – 4 weeks)
    • Prototyping; Report and Presentation
  • Project Focus – Phase 4 (2 weeks)
    • Evaluation and Analysis; Report and Presentation
  • Project Focus – Phase 5 (1 week)
    • Demo preparation; Report and Presentation
  • Demo (Showcase) (1 week)
  • Final Report (1 – 2 weeks)

Summer and Fall 2018 DEXterns

Summer 2018 DEXterns: May 8, 2018 – August 3, 2018 (Dates subject to change)
Fall 2018 DEXterns: August 7, 2018 – December 31, 2018 (Dates subject to change)

The Summer and Fall 2018 DEXterns will focus on the following three areas. If you were admitted to the 2018 DEXterns program, email the director of DEX Lab about what area you are interested, what experience relevant to the area you have, and how you fit to the area. If you are unsure your area of focus in your internship, please consult with the lab director. The contact of the lab director is listed at the end of this internship program descriptions.

Area 1. Augmented and Virtual Reality in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math): This area of focus will explore the opportunity and possibility of AVR in the field of STEM. It includes identification of STEM facts, digitizing STEM facts, design and implementation of an AVR app, evaluation, and writing the results and findings of the study. This area requires programming with Unity and some other computer tool skills in graphics, video editing, etc. Interns will have an opportunity of learning and experiencing the overall procedures of research and development in the academic setting (research design and evaluation) and technical skills described in the description (Unity, AVR programming, etc.).

Area 2. Augmented and Virtual Reality for Civil and Transportation: This area will apply AVR in the fields of Civil and Transportation. It will collaborate with faculty in the field and focus on design and implementation of AVR simulation along with the other tasks described in Area 1 and the overall framework. This area requires programming with Unity and some other computer tool skills in graphics, video editing, etc. Interns will have an opportunity of learning and experiencing the overall procedures of research and development in the academic setting (research design and evaluation) and technical skills described in the description (Unity, AVR programming, AVR headsets, etc.).

Area 3. Augmented and Virtual Reality in Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS): AVR in UAS will explore the use of AVR in the area of UAS. This area of focus will study the needs of AVR in UAS and design a proof of concept prototype to prove the needs of AVR in UAS by conducting empirical experimental studies. This area requires programming with Unity and some other computer tool skills in graphics, video editing, etc. This area also requires knowing the basic structure and mechanism of quadcopters and programming with Python and OpenCV. Interns will have an opportunity of learning and experiencing the overall procedures of research and development in the academic setting (research design and evaluation) and technical skills described in the description (Unity, AVR programming, Python, etc.).

2018-2019 Academic Calendar is available here.
