UF Internship & Research Opp for ECE Undergrads through ALP

Are you looking for an electrical engineering-focused internship or research position in the Summer C or Fall 2022 semesters and interested in developing your personal-professional skillsets? The Active Learning Program (ALP) is a 1-semester internship and research program that connects eager, well-trained undergraduate students with UF faculty and community mentors engaged in internship and research projects. Interested students apply to be enrolled in the 3-credit Active Learning Program IDS4940 course where they will earn valuable, mentored internship/research experience; develop their personal-professional strengths, values, mission, and brand; build their professional and interpersonal skillsets in collaboration, communication, and conflict management; learn to professionally analyze the complex problems facing our world; and create professional deliverables to be used in their internships and as an early career professional. You can learn more about the ALP and apply through our application: https://ufl.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_ey9mDCqr0CCKjK6 

And view our internship and research opportunities https://caires.center.ufl.edu/current-projects/current-alp-projects/  

For electrical engineering students, we recommend paying special attention to these projects:

  • Integration of AI and CRISPR Approaches in Postharvest Biology of Vegetables and Fruits Research
  • Machine Learning for Physical Activity and Stress Recognition Using Wearable Devices Research
  • Validation of a Portable Device to Assess the Big Toe Health Research
  • Web Development Tutorial Internship
  • Youth Financial Literacy Google Site Internship

We look forward to reviewing your application! 

Research overview:
In an industry-supported project through the NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center on Multi-functional Integrated System Technology (MIST), we are developing a flexible hybrid electronic platform for heat exhaustion monitoring. The project involves designing multiple screen-printed sensors that will be integrated onto a flexible substrate with signal processing and Bluetooth circuitry. The Bluetooth circuitry is based on the design of the TI BLE Temperature Patch.For more information, see the Flyer.
Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI)
Here is a great undergrad research opportunity offered by the DOE under their SULI program. They pay for housing, your flight and a great stipend. There are several options, especially for ECE undergrads across all of the labs. Check it out: https://science.osti.gov/wdts/suli/How-to-Apply
