ALERT and Gordon-CenSSIS Scholars
The ALERT and Gordon-CenSSIS Scholars Program offers freshmen engineering students the opportunity to become involved in research and K-12 outreach related to the ALERT or Gordon-CenSSIS Research Centers, in addition to other research and K-12 programs on campus.
Scholars attend research presentations, engage in discussion with upper-class mentors, participate in research experiences under the guidance of a faculty member and learn about interesting outreach opportunities.
We believe that the ALERT and Gordon-CenSSIS Scholars Program helps engineering undergraduates to consider the many paths open to them as potential researchers, educators and engineering leaders. Participation in the Program, coupled with co-op and other experiential learning options, will position the students well to bring engineering solutions to the global marketplace.
