Are you an undergraduate student looking for engineering research over the summer? Then consider joining SURP!

You are placed with a UCLA Engineering faculty member and post-docs to work on a research project in one of the two REU programs that we host: Functional Nanomaterials and Interactive Systems.

On top of working on your very own research project, you can also benefit from professional development workshops, faculty talks, industry talks, and technical presentation labs. At the end of the program, we host a virtual symposium where students can present their work and publish a journal for student abstracts and posters.
