SCI TV - SCI Overview for Engineering Scholars
The quest of the ESP is to leverage the exciting engineering-based research at the University by exposing the first year students to actual research activities. The addition of a research component to the first year student's experience allows the student to see over the horizon offered by prerequisite courses. By giving the first year student a more in-depth look into engineering it is hoped that we will increase the enthusiasm level of the students with the result being significantly improved retention rates. Higher retention rates will translate into a larger and better-trained graduating class of much-needed engineers and computer scientists.
