Opportunity Research Scholars’ Program

The Opportunity Research Scholars’ Program (ORS) is an innovative undergraduate research program designed to enhance and expand the academic experience of ECE majors to help them reach their full potential. As an enrichment program, ORS helps students to see beyond the rigors of the academic curriculum and understand the possible applications of the concepts they learn in the classroom.
