What is ERSP?

The BYU Computer Science Early Research Scholars Program (ERSP) is a team-based research apprentice experience for computer science majors in their second year of the program.

Students work in teams of four, and each team is matched with an active research project in the department. Students learn about research in computer science and then propose and carry out an independent research project over the course of an academic year.

ERSP is a structured and scalable research experience for early undergraduates in computer science
