36 Clark School Students Accepted into NIST Summer Research Program

The A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland is proud to announce that 36 of its students have been accepted into the National Institutes of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program in Gaithersburg, Md.

The NIST SURF program allows students majoring in engineering, science and mathematics to work side by side with leading researchers, use cutting-edge technology and gain valuable hands-on research experience in NIST’s six laboratories:  Material Measurement Laboratory; Physical Measurement Laboratory; Engineering Laboratory; Information Technology Laboratory; Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology; and NIST Center for Neutron Research.

More than 600 student applications from 136 schools were received for the summer 2013 program. Of the approximately 190 students accepted into the program, 43 attend the University of Maryland, a record high -- last year, a total of 30 UMD students were accepted. The 36 Clark School of Engineering students participating in SURF represent seven of the Clark School’s eight departments.
