Herrmann to lead 'Design Innovations' stream for UMD's first-year 'FIRE' program
Starting in January 2017, Professor Jeffrey Herrmann (ME/ISR) will lead a “Designing Innovations” innovation and research stream for the University of Maryland’s First-Year Innovation & Research Experience (FIRE) program.
The FIRE program reaches some 400 first-year students every year, providing them with authentic research experience, broad mentorship, and institutional connections that will enhance their academic success, personal resilience, and professional development.
Students in Herrmann’s stream will study how designers work and consider how they tackle system design problems. The stream has room for about 35 students. It is one of three new streams in the program for 2017.
About the streams
Students may choose any FIRE stream that fits their interests and schedule. FIRE can be the perfect time to do research in a field that a student might not otherwise explore.
