MEET THE STUDENTS
|Chris' Three Favorite Things about the ECE Department:
1) Maryland's proximity to industry and research labs that provide valuable hands-on experience
2) The size of the campus—on any given day, I knew I would meet new people because the campus is large
3) Maryland is the best engineering school in the Mid-Atlantic and one of the best in the country
Advice to Incoming Students:
Get involved in activities outside of your school work. There will always work to be done. My best memories are from those non-academic experiences.
talks about ECE @ Maryland:
"As a student, I really liked the proximity to industry and research labs that the University of Maryland offered, as they provide students with valuable hands-on experience in education.
During the summer before my senior year, I participated in the MERIT program, which allowed me to conduct research in an off-campus laboratory while getting paid. At the end of the summer, all of the MERIT students had a research fair where I won first prize in my category. Not only was this experience valuable in guiding my future decisions, but I was also able to leave a mark on the scientific community.
Outside of the classroom, I was a member of the marching band, basketball pep band, Maryland Indoor Drumline, Engineers Without Borders, and Eta Kappa Nu, the international honor society for electrical and computer engineers.
After completing my B.S. degree, I decided to go to graduate school to do doctoral research in organic semiconductors.
The University of Maryland helped me prepare for graduate school through its reputation, courses, and opportunities for research on and off campus."
