Join CS, EE, and CpE Graduate Students and Faculty to learn about the Joint University Microelectronics Program (JUMP) Undergraduate Research Initiative (URI). 

The JUMP URI is an academic year long program that both exposes undergraduates to career opportunities associated with JUMP sponsors, and illustrates the benefits of obtaining an advanced degree in a technical area related to microelectronics and computer science. It combines a structured undergraduate research experience with PhD student and faculty mentorship.

Undergraduate research is something every student should consider. Research experience helps expose you to the cutting edge of your field and can help make your courses more interesting. Furthermore, this can help improve your competitive edge for full-time jobs, internships, or grad school-- and help you decide whether grad school is a good fit for you. Research experiences often lead to publications and chances to attend a conference in the research topic area. These research experiences can also give you more direct interaction with faculty and help you get strong letters of reference. 

This information session will present an overview of various research projects in the CS and ECE departments through talks and posters. A wide variety of topics in CS, Computer Engineering, and Electrical Engineering are in scope.

URI is a paid program. Applications will be accepted through 12/3/18. Click here to apply.
