ECE Undergrads Malik & Ropp Earn Everitt Award
ECE undergraduates Waseem Malik and Chad Ropp have received the International Engineering Consortiums (IEC) 2007 William L. Everitt Student Award of Excellence. The award honors outstanding seniors in electrical and computer engineering at affiliate universities across the country who are in the top 10% of their class and have an interest in the communications field.
Chad Ropp is an electrical engineering major and is minoring in physics. He also participated in the MERIT research program in Summer 2006 and spent the 2006-2007 academic year studying under Professor Julius Goldhar. The title of Chad's research project was "Nonlinear Mach-Zehnder Interferometer as a DPSK Signal Regenerator." He plans to attend graduate school studying electrophysics in the ECE Department here at UMD in the fall.
The students will have their names added to the Everitt Award Plaque in the display case in the A.V. Williams Building outside of room 2460.
