  • The idea of clustering classes

    When students "cluster" in courses, they simply sign up for the same sections for select courses. By doing so, they know that they will have the same academic experience with others that they are familiar with. I would like to encourage MEP students to do this so that we can provide academic support whenever possible. It is easier when students have a common experience. If you would like to cluster with other MEP students, please post a reply stating what class(es) and section(s) you're signing up for. If it is a special section (e.g., merit, honors, etc), please say so. Lets focus on math and science courses, but feel free to post any classes you want others to consider signing up for.

  • REU at UCONN for Students with ADHD

    This REU Site is funded by The National Science Foundation (NSF), Division of Engineering Education and Centers, offering research opportunities in the security of crucial infrastructures to undergraduates with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD/ADD).  Studies suggest that students with ADHD are more creative and more willing to take risks. Those traits are exactly what the field of engineering needs. Therefore, these students may offer the potential to present revolutionizing solutions to complex problems dealing with cyber and physical security of critical infrastructure. 

    The program combines a ten-week traditional summer REU research experience with close mentorship, specially designed seminars, brainstorming sessions, and workshops designed to address the strengths and needs of participants.  Students will participate in their own original research projects in the morning and in the afternoon there will be laboratory rotations to provide a multidisciplinary research experience.  Participants will have the opportunity to present their creative ideas relating their experiences from different research areas.

    Eligibility

    - Students diagnosed with or showing signs of ADHD who are traditionally underrepresented and underserved in engineering programs
    - Must be US citizens or permanent residents enrolled as engineering majors
    - Must have completed their sophomore or junior year by June 1, 2017
    - Must have a minimum GPA of 2.8 (out of 4.0)

    Applicants must provide a document from the doctor or complete a self-assessment for proof of eligibility upon acceptance. Project investigators will do diligence to protect the privacy of each participant.

    The registration website will be launched on the high security server of the UConn School of Engineering.  However, it should be noted that, if you are selected to participate in the program, lab directors and possible the graduate students who will be in the program will be aware of the eligibility requirement for this REU Site.
