UCLA Samueli Engineering is hosting our annual summer research program for this coming summer, known as Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP).

SURP is an umbrella program that administers and scaffolds summer undergraduate research opportunities within UCLA Engineering. We currently coordinate two paid REU programs: Interactive Systems (IS), and Functional Nanomaterials (FNM). Selected scholars for the two REU sites will be paired with a UCLA Samueli Engineering faculty based on project needs, skills, and interest. They will be invited to work on a project that contributes to the momentum of their assigned lab.

Please read more about all the amazing resources and scaffolding that is provided to SURP scholars on our SURP website!
