RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES

The Minority Undergraduate Scholars Engineering Research Program (MUSERP) at Georgia Tech

The program is year round. High performing students are identified early on and encouraged to apply to the program. Selected students are assisted to find a faculty advisor who will agree to mentor them and who are committed to the vision and mission of the program. Students must present their work as technical papers in the Chapte's Annual Technical Paper Symposium. The students are groomed and encouraged to submit their papers to the NSBE national technical competitions. Students receive stipends for their research work and are provided expenses paid trips to the regional and national competitions. When fully developed and operational, some minimal budget for faculty mentors may be made available for materials and supplies. Successful attainment of the above mission will place the Georgia Tech Chapter in an anchored and enviable position as the leading Chapter in NSBE as well as continue to be the catalyst for other NSBE members to consider Georgia Tech as their #1 university of choice for graduate school.
