AMT Building involves UROP

To the Editor:

As UROP Coordinator for the Media Laboratory, I was dismayed by Andrew Bein's comment that "few undergraduates have any business there at all." There are currently 16 faculty in the building who supervise UROP students, and during any term there are at least 30 UROPer's working here. Undergraduates are engaged in all aspects of the building's function, from research to courses to summer softball.

My own career at MIT really began with my UROP at the Architecture Machine Group, and we continue to be a mainstay of undergraduate research on campus.
