UCB-HBCU REU is a 9-week summer residential program that offers sophomores, juniors, and seniors in Bachelor of Science or Engineering programs the opportunity to conduct research in the laboratories of electrical engineering faculty. Participants of this competitive merit-based program undertake cutting edge electrical engineering, material science, physics and chemistry research projects. They also have access to enrichment activities including seminars, field trips, as well as one-on-one advice regarding graduate school programs, the process to apply for fellowship, and a subsidized GRE prep course. After completion of the UCB HBCU summer internship, participants are given the option to continue their work at their home institutions, with funding provided by the program.
