MEET THE STUDENTS
|Tony's Three Favorite Things about the ECE Department:
1) The helpful staff and undergraduate advisers
2) Faculty mentoring
3) Opportunity for research
Advice to Incoming Students:
Incoming students should be active in ECE as well as on campus, and participate in many of the things that are unique to the University of Maryland.
talks about ECE @ Maryland:
"I didn't know what engineering was until college, when it was time to choose a major. I was mostly interested in pure science, but engineering allows me to really apply that science and create or design something to help make society better.
Most students at Maryland are talented, dedicated and hardworking, knowing what it takes to be successful in electrical engineering.
Most professors care about teaching and making the ECE department a better place, as well as their research interests. The atmosphere at Maryland was very positive and open.
As an ECE student, I was part of the REU and MERIT research internship programs and taught ENEE 204 discussion classes for three semesters. I am most proud of my teaching because it gave me the opportunity to interact with younger students and change their outlook about engineering.
Currently I am interested in how electronics applies to biology, such as neural prostheses, and cell-based sensing.
Outside of the classroom, I went to the Campus Recreation Center and the golfing range. There are also many cultural and social organizations to be a part of, as well as DC to go visit.
After graduating, I went on to graduate school for Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. Eventually, I hope to start my own business, and ECE at Maryland has helped me by giving me the essential technical skills as well as the opportunity to teach and do research."
