Academic Level:
Undergraduate Students

The University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship in Integrated Technologies (SURF-IT) offers summer research opportunities for UCSC and non-UCSC undergraduate students. SURF-IT includes a research experience supervised by UCSC faculty in computer or electrical engineering, or computer science. The primary topics are computer systems to aid health and independent living. This includes systems for diagnostics, rehabilitation, and assistance of special needs or disabilities. SURF-IT students have weekly meetings focused on graduate school preparation, presenting research results, as well as field trips to neighboring Silicon Valley research laboratories, and of course, a number of social activities!
