Two BME students selected as University Scholars for 2014-15

Congratulations to Ahmed Hemeid and Michael Paonessa who were recently selected as College of Engineering University Scholars for 2014-2015! 

The University Scholars Program introduces undergraduate students at the University of Florida to the exciting world of academic research. In the program, students work one-on-one with UF faculty on selected research projects. Through this initiative, students will take away an understanding of and appreciation for the scholarly method. The program will consist of undertaking a full research project during the fall and spring semesters of the academic year, under the guidance of a faculty member. The University Scholars Program serves as an exceptional capstone to the academic careers of UF students.

The response from students this year was very encouraging and the selection process was competitive. The College of Engineering selected 43 of its best students and we are proud to have Ahmed and Michael represent the BME department in the cohort of University Scholars across 15 colleges!
