Program Objectives

URP is a 12-week summer program aimed at providing talented undergraduate students with creative opportunities that go beyond the engineering classroom curriculum and enable them to develop their own ideas and work independently on hands-on research projects in sustainable engineering with advice and guidance from a faculty mentor.

Program Policies 

Students are required to work 40 hours a week on their project.

Students will be allowed to take only 1 course over the summer with program approval.

No vacations will be permitted during the 12 week program.
