UCR students gain International Research Experiences in China under the NSF IRES Program

UCR students gain International Research Experiences in China under the NSF....

A team of EE undergraduate students including Andrew Juarez, Jorge Carrillo and Jacob Leung has completed a very successful US-China IRES Program in June and July, 2009. The is the 2nd year of the NSF sponsored US-China International Research Experiences for Students (IRES) Program designed to expose American undergraduates from UCR to fast-changing global research environments. It aims to prepare American students to better understand the outside world and become globally competitive in their future careers. This US-China IRES program was directed by Prof. Albert Wang. This year UCR students spent the summer in two Chinese Universities, the Tsinghua University in Beijing and the Hangdian University in southern China. Despite the inconvenience caused by the global H1N1 flu, the IRES2009 went through very successfully. During their summer stay in China, UCR students conducted various academic works in the local host universities ranging from semiconductor device simulation, fabrication, testing to FPGA circuit design, as well as IEEE student activities, etc. In addition, the UCR students enjoyed good times with their Chinese host students and explored deeply into the Chinese cultures. A post-IRES seminar will be held at UCR in October. All students are invited to the seminar and are encouraged to apply for the UC-China IRES Program for the summer 2010.
