The Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program at NJIT encourages low-income, first-generation and underrepresented undergraduate juniors and seniors to consider graduate studies and careers in college teaching. The primary goal is to increase the number of scientists, engineers, and mathematicians from underrepresented groups that obtain doctoral degrees and enter academia. McNair Scholars engage in research opportunities and other scholarly activities with faculty mentors. Results of their research projects are presented at professional meetings and conferences, and are published in professional journals. This booklet describes the research projects of NJIT's McNair program participants during the 2001-2002 academic year.
