Student projects, internships and Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) projects complement faculty research and provide context for classroom studies. For freshmen and seniors, CEE provides funding to support UROPs with faculty in the department. In addition, CEE is active participants in the School of Engineering’s SuperUROP program and we plan to expand the opportunities in future years.
Our mini-UROP program takes place over IAP and is designed to offer freshmen a taste of CEE. Students will work with either a grad student or postdoc on a project, and if the interest and opportunity is there, the mini could turn into a full term UROP in the Spring.
