Description: The University of Maryland's Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, with support from the National Science Foundation is offering exciting research opportunities for undergraduate students in the broad area of electrical engineering. The Maryland Engineering Research Internship Teams (MERIT) program combines cutting-edge, team-based research with technical and educational seminars. Students typically work in teams of two or three and are supervised jointly by faculty members and graduate students. For Summer 2012, we are pleased to offer students research experiences under BIEN - Biosystems Internships for Engineers, an NSF-funded REU.

During the 10-week summer program, students develop their research projects, attend technical seminars, visit local industry and government organizations, meet with leaders in the field, and prepare a technical research report. Students also attend a series of ethics seminars that cover various ethical concepts and theories as well as their application, especially in research settings. Students actively participate in seminar discussions and brief writing assignments. The summer program culminates in the MERIT Fair, a day-long program during which student teams demonstrate their accomplishments and are evaluated by a panel of experts.
Stipend: $5,000 stipend for their summer work, plus on campus housing and partial travel support
