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

Scholars participate in a yearlong 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 technical papers to presenting at conferences.
