We seek to leverage R&D capacity of the nation and its technology resources to pursue an all-hazards approach to homeland security and disaster lifecycle management. We consider this a sacred obligation, having experienced the devastating effects of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and, more recently, Hurricanes Gustav and Ike. We believe that it is our fundamental duty to apply our expertise and intellect to ensure that our nation is better prepared.
Whether you are a scientist, engineer, researcher, business professional, or student - if the NIMSAT motto instills in you a sense of pride, passion and commitment, we call on you to partner with NIMSAT. Please contact Ramesh Kolluru, Executive Director of the NIMSAT Institute.
Staff & Faculty Positions Available:
UL Lafayette Computer Science Students:
Are you interested in working on real projects with cutting edge technologies and gaining invaluable experience for your future job?
We are looking for highly motivated students with experience in Java, JSP, .NET, C/C++, Struts, Databases, Data Warehousing, and web development. NIMSAT Institute students, while they are still in school, are provided several opportunities to work on "real-life" projects with industry partners. These can result in summer internships as well as eventual job opportunities.
UL Lafayette Computer Science students who are interested in working with the NIMSAT Institute must first demonstrate proficiency in algorithmic thinking, Java, .NET, C/C++, and/or databases. We conduct exams approximately 6 times per year.
Student testing will take place on the dates listed below. Students will not be allowed to register until they have taken this test and have been approved by Dr. Kolluru. Interested students should meet in the Abdalla Hall lobby to receive further instruction to where the testing will take place.
Test dates: Spring 2011 - TBA
Students who perform well on this exam are asked to undertake a one-semester Computer Science project with NIMSAT under the direction of Dr. Ramesh Kolluru. Generally, vacant Assistantships are offered to students who have shown the greatest potential in this Computer Science project work. On rare occasions, we may offer an Assistantship based solely on exam results.
