From Our Community

by Paul Tola ’22 (Electrical Engineering)
AC² students, faculty adapted to unprecedented challenges due to COVID-19 and presented their summer research live via Webex, June 30. Here, Paul Tola ’22 (Electrical Engineering) talks about his research "Noise Vibration and Harshness Testing." 
Follow AC² on Instagram @ampcstepnp for more.  
The AC² (AMP & CSTEP Community) Program, which supports underrepresented students working toward careers in STEM fields, provides an example of the campus community’s perseverance. The program reconfigured its annual summer research experience for undergraduate students in STEM, enabling them to produce original scholarship while respecting social distancing guidelines.
