Early Career Research Scholars Program

in this section

The Cornell School of Electrical and Computer Engineering announces the Cornell ECE Early Career Research Scholars Program. This program is designed for students between their freshmen and sophomore years in the College of Engineering who intend to major in ECE.

Students will apply to the program in conjunction with a faculty advisor, submitting a project proposal and a budget through the ELI application system. Students will participate in the ELI summer informal presentations, and will also present their research in an ECE-centric workshop at summer's end. Students will also be asked to present their work to incoming ECE ENG 1050 classes in the fall.

The application process and deadlines will be the same as the ELI program.

Following are videos of several of our professors describing the research they conduct in their labs. These are some of the exciting research topics rising freshmen could explore in our ECE Early Career Research Scholars Program.

A list of the 2013 winners and their projects can be found here.
