    Guest speaker Katie Rae, CEO and managing partner of The Engine, spoke about entrepreneurship and opportunities for "tough technologies."

SuperUROP gives students the research toolkits they need to tackle real-world problems.

Scholars participate in a year-long research experience and enroll in 6.UAR (Preparation for Undergraduate Research). Working on supervised projects, students learn the essentials of research, from designing experiments to writing research papers to presenting at conferences.
