Weekly Memo

Dear members of the Hajim School community:

I would like to start by congratulating Paul Ampadu, associate professor in computer and electrical engineering on publishing his first co-authored book Managing Temperature Effects in Nanoscale Adaptive Systems”. Paul is currently serving as the 2011-2012 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Visiting Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT. Congratulations Paul!

I would also like to pass along a few upcoming opportunities. Kelly Engineering Resources is offering a Future Engineers Scholarship, awarding one outstanding sophomore or junior student with $5,000 for 2012 tuition expenses. Visit the scholarship website for more information and to download application materials. The submission deadline is October 14, 2011.

On October 18, the L'OrÉal USA Fellowships For Women In Science program will begin accepting applications for the 2012 Fellowship Program. The program awards five post-doctoral women scientists from a variety of fields – including computer science and engineering – with grants of up to $60,000. More information can be found on the program website.

Microsoft will be stopping in for on-campus interviews October 26 and 27 for technical full-time and internship positions. Please submit resume to the CareerLink by October 13, 2011 and check out the Microsoft careers website for more information on this opportunity.

The David T. Kearns Center will be presenting “Bound for Graduate School? Strategies to Gain Admission to Highly Competitive Graduate Programs and How to Pay for It!” featuring acclaimed author, speaker, and career advisor Donald Asher. The talk will be held tonight, October 10, 2011 from 6:00 P.M. to 7:30 P.M. in Lander Auditorium, Hutchison Hall.

Remember your quest to find the perfect school for you? Well, now is your chance to give back and help another engineering student connect with the Hajim School. “Engineering & Applied Sciences at Rochester” will be October 28-29, 2011. For more information on volunteering, visit the program website.

Lastly, I’d like to remind all students that Fall Career and Internship Day is October 12, 2011 from 1:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. in the May Room/Bridge Lounge, Wilson Commons. There will be ample opportunity to network with companies in engineering and applied science fields.
