Project Connect

Project Connect has been a part of the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) since 2014 in Tampa, Florida. The program was created by Dr. Tom Weller and was designed to increase the participation of underrepresented minority students at IMS. Each year, the program has become more and more integrated into IMS, and each conference provides different experiences for the attendees. For example, at IMS2016 in San Francisco, the heart of Silicon Valley, students attended a panel session made up of successful entrepreneurs and were able to listen to their success stories and gain inspiration for their own potential endeavors.
