The College of Engineering and the University of Michigan offer two programs SURE and SROP to provide undergraduate students with an opportunity to participate in summer research. Please find information below about these two exciting programs.
Summer Undergraduate Research in Engineering – SURE (for U-M undergraduate students)
SURE offers summer research internships to outstanding undergraduate students who have completed their sophomore or junior year (preference will be given to those who have completed three years of study) by the time of their internship. Participants have the opportunity to conduct 10-12 weeks of full-time summer research with some of the country’s leading faculty in a wide range of engineering disciplines. The program provides opportunities for students to assess their interests and potential in pursuing research at the Masters or Ph.D. level in graduate school. All participants must apply online through the SURE website. Accepted applicants from the University of Michigan receive guidance by a faculty advisor in a College of Engineering research facility, a stipend of $5,000, attend regular meetings and seminars and contribute to an abstract booklet with highlights of their summer research project and/or experience.

Summer Research Opportunity Program – SROP (for non-U-M undergraduate students, U-M Flint, and U-M Dearborn students)
SROP offers summer research internships to outstanding undergraduate students who are entering their junior or senior year. Participants will conduct 7-weeks of full-time research with some of the country’s leading faculty across a wide range of engineering disciplines. This program provides students the opportunity to gain research skills and assess their interests and potential in pursuing graduate level research at the University of Michigan. Accepted applicants will receive the following benefits: $4,500 stipend, room and board, free GRE Test Prep course, professional development seminars, and opportunity to participate in a research symposium.
