We are excited to announce that applications are now being accepted to participate in the College of Engineering 2019 Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP).   SURP is a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to engage in hands-on research with a faculty mentor while using critical thinking, collaborative, and entrepreneurial skills to help solve major societal challenges. SURP is an 8-week long program, and students are expected to spend a minimum of 20 hours/week working on their research projects; SURP students and their faculty mentor will agree upon a start date for their research project.

Each SURP student participant will receive a CENG Summer Research Grant of $3,000. Please note that the grant amount is fixed and additional funding is not available in the event that students work more than 20 hours/week or for more than 8 weeks. This grant will be disbursed through the Financial Aid Office. Preference will be given to lower division students (students completing their freshman or sophomore year) who have not previously participated in SURP.
