The Transfer-to-Excellence Research Experience for Undergraduates program (TTE REU) is a 9-week summer residential program that offers California Community College students majoring engineering or physical sciences the opportunity to conduct research at University of California, Berkeley.

TTE REU is a multi-disciplinary summer undergraduate research program hosted by University of California, Berkeley faculty across three research disciplines: biotechnology, nanotechnology, and robotics.

During the nine-week residential summer program, each TTE participant is paired with two mentors, a faculty advisor and a graduate student mentor, who oversee and guide the student in independent research activities, through regular research group meetings and one-on-one discussions. Outside of their independent research projects, TTE participants are trained in research protocol, laboratory safety, and professional ethics. They also participate in academic and professional development activities to prepare for a baccalaureate degree and career in science and engineering. The TTE REU program partners with the University of California's Transfer Alliance Project, which provides individualized academic and transfer advising and enrichment programs that prepare TTE participants to be competitive applicants to four-year colleges.

$3,600 stipend plus room and board.
