Summer Undergraduate Research in Engineering – SURE (for UM undergraduate students)

SURE at UM strives to increase the number of diverse students within the College of Engineering by offering graduate-level research experience to all rising undergraduate students. Students will receive the opportunity to participate in 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 receive guidance from a faculty advisor in a College of Engineering research facility, a stipend of $6,000, and attend regular meetings and seminars.

The goal of this program is to:

  • Introduce students to research and prepare them for advanced studies in a graduate program at UM
  • Build professional and personal networks to support students’ interest in joining the academic community.
  • Encourage students to apply to a graduate program at U-M.
