Smart Lighting ERC students get hands-on, real-world leadership, research and entrepreneurial experience. They have many opportunities to present their research, interact with industrial partners, participate in workshops and seminars that go beyond engineering into the realm of intellectual property, entrepreneurial activities, and of course, work in world class facilities with the guidance of expert faculty researchers.
ERC graduate students form a Student Leadership Council, where they develop leadership skills, run meetings, organize events, and make group decisions and build consensus.
Visit the REU page for more information about this program for visiting undergraduates. Spend the summer participating in research being conducted at the Smart Lighting ERC.
