ECE master's students Andrew Jameson and Aneeb Qureshi have received fellowship awards from DRS Signal Solutions Inc. The competitive awards, each $6,500, recognize students with a GPA of 3.0 or above who are interested in communication systems, signal processing, embedded systems or analog/microwave circuit radio design.
Jameson, a student in the Professional Master's Program, is concentrating his studies on wireless networks and embedded systems. The Hagerstown, Md., native anticipates graduating this winter and will seek a full-time position once he's completed his academic work at Carnegie Mellon.
Qureshi, from Fairfax, Va., is in the final semester of the department's Integrated Master's/Bachelor's (IMB) program. During his time on campus, he's focused much of his coursework on signal processing, and has served as a teaching assistant for the Digital Communication and Signal Processing Systems Design course. After graduation in May, Qureshi will join Northrop Grumman's Future Technical Leaders program.
