Industry, government, and University representatives were on hand for the Maryland Engineering Research Internship Teams (MERIT) Annual Fair at the Stamp Student Union Grand Ballroom on Friday, August 11.
MERIT is a unique, 11-week summer research program that offers top undergraduate engineering students from around the country the opportunity to engage in cutting-edge, team-based, cross-disciplinary research projects at the University of Maryland. The summer program culminates in the MERIT Fair, a half-day program that provides student teams a chance to showcase their work to a wider audience, and to be judged on the quality of their research efforts. Student projects were scrutinized by a panel of judges selected from academia, industry, and government laboratories
