Morshed, Salman

Major: 
Electrical Engineering

What is the RISE area of interest during your first year and why?: 

I have chosen Instruction to be my RISE area of concentration for my first year. I have always been intrigued by the academic side of electrical engineering, which includes research and teaching. I believe that being in a position where I take part of the responsibility to teach and guide other students will help me build a stronger foundation for my future career.

What is the RISE area of interest during your second year and why?: 

After I expand my technical knowledge further in my field of study, I want to start getting involved in research during my senior year. In particular, I want to pursue research in renewable energy, battery technologies, and solar energy.

What are your involvements and or extracurricular activities?: 

During the past two semesters I have been part of the Hyperloop team to design, simulate a fully working pod for SpaceX final competition in January of 2017. As a member of the team, I have been involved in the design work as well as the pod assembly and testing.

What is your cool engineering experience?: 

At the beginning of this semester I was assign to design a project as part of the UMD Hyperloop challenge week to test the abilities and skills of the new recruits. The project was a basic control system that integrates interesting physical and electrical concepts such as electromagnetic induction.
