The Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Xerox Engineering Research Fellows program is purposed to provide engineering undergraduates with an opportunity to participate in a research experience in the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences during the summer preceding their junior or senior year. Additionally, students will receive independent study course credit for the continuation of their work during the fall and spring semesters of the following year. This program is designed to include faculty and students from all engineering departments, the Department of Computer Science, and the Institute of Optics.
The selection of Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Xerox Engineering Research Fellows is highly competitive and will provide a unique and distinguishing research extensive experience. Fellows will be selected in the spring semester of the junior year. Selection criteria include research interests, competitive academic performance, and intellectual ability and curiosity. Stipends ($3600), housing, travel (if necessary) and a limited meal plan are provided to student participants during the summer, through the office of the dean.
The goal of the program is to have a minimum of 30-40% of our engineering undergraduates participating, and continuing on, in the field of research into graduate school.
