We are always looking for Swarthmore undergraduates to join us, from freshman to seniors. It is never too early to get involved in research! You will have the chance to work on cutting-edge projects, often at the interface of hardware design and novel computer algorithms. Many past undergraduates have authored papers published in leading journals and conferences in the field. You are encouraged to take E19: Numerical Methods for Engineers, E30: Computational Optics, and/or E56: Modeling and Optimization either before or while conducting research in the lab.
We have multiple full-time positions available in the summer. The deadline to apply for Swarthmore summer funding is usually in early February. Please contact me before you apply for summer funding to develop a project proposal of mutual interest. You are encouraged to get in contact as early as possible in the Fall semester if you are interested in summer research.
During the academic year, students can receive academic credit (as a directed reading) or pay for research in the lab. You may contact me at any time if you are interested in this option.
All Engineering majors must complete a senior capstone project. During the Fall semester of your senior year, you will choose the project, and the work will be completed during the Spring semester. I highly recommend that students interested in a senior capstone in the lab complete either (1) a summer position or (2) a directed reading during the senior year Fall semester, and expand that work into the senior capstone.
