Responsibilities

At the end of the semester, DREAM Students MUST write a short (2-3 pages long) technical report documenting the results they obtain within the duration of the project, and they are expected to present their research experience at the annual Undergraduate Research Day held in May.

Evaluations

Describe your personal and technical progress during the past semester. Provide a 2-3 pages long report of the project, addressing the following topics:

  • Successes and challenges of your DREAM project,
  • Impact of your DREAM experience on your undergraduate career, or
  • Any general comments about the DREAM initiative.
If you have published any paper(s) as a result of your research collaboration, provide a copy of your publication(s) to the DREAM coordinators. Note that even if the project period spans multiple terms, you need to write your evaluation at the end of each semester.
