ME Sophomore Elisabeth Goldwasser Awarded SRCEA Undergraduate Research Assistantship

The Semiconductor Research Corporation Education Alliance has awarded Mechanical Engineering student Elisabeth Goldwasser an Undergraduate Research Assistantship, worth $6,000. The Undergraduate Research Assistants (URA) program seeks to attract academically qualified students early, i.e., at the freshman/sophomore level, and build their interest in and enthusiasm for disciplines of interest to the semiconductor industry by providing a valid research experience. Awards were made as unrestricted gifts to faculty who submitted winning applications. Fifty assistantships will be awarded for the summer of 2001.

Sponsored by Professor Yogendra Joshi, Ms. Goldwasser is a sophomore Mechanical Engineering student at the Clark School of Engineering in the University of Maryland, College Park. This summer will be her first time working in such a laboratory, and she is very excited at the opportunity to get a hands-on attempt at discovering her interests. After she graduates she would like to attend graduate school, however will most likely work first to gain experience as a professional engineer. Uncertain of her specific career goals at this point, she open to exploring all of the different areas of the mechanical engineering field and is optimistic about the outcome of her future.
