Summer Research Internship Program

The ECE Department is very pleased to announce an exciting new Summer Research Internship Program (SRIP) for continuing ECE undergraduate students. This new program will launch in the summer of 2017. It is a 10-week program that runs from July 3 to September 8, 2017.

ECE Summer Research Internships will be in labs where interns will have the opportunity to observe and participate in the research activities of a research group under the supervision of the PI or another member of the research team. The program includes an enrichment component for students consisting of workshops on research communication, research writing and other pertinent topics. In addition, students are required to present their work at the Summer Research Conference on August 17, 2017. Research interns selected for this program will receive a summer stipend in the amount of $5000.

Undergraduate students who are accepted into this program must:

  • Participate in an orientation session on Monday, June 26, 2017
  • Work in the lab for 10 weeks, from July 3 to September 8, 2017
  • Participate in the Summer Research Conference on August 17, 2017
  • Participate in all program professional development activities
  • Not accept other employment for the 10-week duration of the program
