Undergraduate Research Program

The Undergraduate Research Program is a new initiative from the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science to develop first-in-class research opportunities that lead to undergraduates who are well-informed about engineering career opportunities in both academic and corporate settings.


Undergraduate Research Program Information

We invite engineering students to apply to be a part of this program’s inaugural cohort. As a part of this program, students will be recognized for their research, master various skills, including deciphering journal articles and presenting research posters, and receive advising for securing paid summer research and internship positions.

For more information on the benefits and requirements of the program, please read the URP program description or RSVP for an upcoming Information Session.

The application form can be found here.

Application deadline: Thursday, December 22 at 5:00 PM.
