Undergraduate Research Opportunities

I do not do research anymore because I have other duties in the department (lecturer, chief advisor); but I have been conducting various projects to help advising, such as ECE lab videos (on our ECE website now for prospective students); I also recruit students for projects related to the improvement of ECE 110. I welcome any enthusiastic student with creative ideas and/or with good programming skills. For example one (spring 2009) student designed the ECE 110 website.
