Department Poised to Become

Cutting-Edge Digital Signal Processing Research
Poised to Become National Leader in Undergraduate Research Opportunities
The Department will launch its Maryland Engineering Research Internship Teams (MERIT) program this summer, building upon the already successful undergraduate research program initiated last summer.
The MERIT program will merge the existing Research Internships in Telecommunications Engineering (RITE) program, which will be expanded, with the newly-created Microelectronics Research Collaboration Program (MRCP), giving the department one of the most comprehensive undergraduate research programs in the country.
The MERIT program, supported through funding from the National Science
Foundation and the Army Research Laboratory, offers students the opportunity
to engage in cutting-edge, team-based research in the broad areas of telecommunications
and microelectronics. Students typically work in teams of 2-3, and are
supervised jointly by both faculty members and graduate students.
