The Title III-funded ADAPT-EI program at Bethune-Cookman University is searching for eligible student candidates who are interested in and will dedicate to the exciting opportunity to become ADAPT-EI scholars.

Environmental Intelligence (EI) refers to a system through which information about a particular region or process is collected from more than one inter-related source for the benefit of decision makers. By nature, EI-related research is data- and information-driven, and is closely related to the 21st Century Technical skills (those abilities that enable students to access, analyze, manage, synthesize, evaluate, create, and share information in a variety of forms and media that incorporate a global perspective) and the Science and Technology Focus Areas (Uncrewed Systems, Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Computing, ‘Omics, Data, and Citizen Science) identified by federal government agencies.

The following goals of the ADAPT-EI program support the University and Title III Goals:

  • Establish the “Advancing Data Analytics Program through Environmental Intelligence”, ADAPT-EI, a platform for the academic enterprise Data Analytics for Environmental Intelligence.
  • Establish a platform for the academic enterprise Data Analytics for Environmental Intelligence that aligns with the Focus Areas of UAS/autonomous systems, AI, Remote Sensing, Data, and Citizen Science.
  • Enhance and expand the academic enterprise by increasing professional services, consulting, and professional development opportunities to the broader communities.
  • Brand B-CU in the high-demand field of Environmental Intelligence to increase institutional visibility locally, regionally, and nationally.

The program will consist of:

  • Training opportunities in Data Analytics for Environmental Intelligence
  • Project-based research in Data Analytics for Environmental Intelligence
  • Professional development opportunities for faculty and students
  • External collaboration and outreach
