"This opportunity has allowed me to perform research in an area that I am really interested in. Through the research I have learned a lot about the use of energy in the United States. My research experience was a great opportunity for me to apply some of engineering knowledge to a real-world problem. The time spent doing research was definitely a positive experience and I am grateful that I got the opportunity."
"This research opportunity was one of the most interesting and beneficial experiences of my life. Through several hours of interpreting code written by current and previous research colleagues, and through several hours of writing and testing my own code, I was able to not only achieve our research objectives, but also drastically improve my programming knowledge. If there are any students interested in getting involved in summer research, I would highly recommended introducing yourself to professors who have similar research interests as you. Most professors are happy to talk to students who take the initiative to get involved in research."
