SuperUROP provides students with real-world research experience.

SuperUROP scholars undertake a two-semester supervised research project and enroll in 6.UAR (Preparation for Undergraduate Research).

In both the lab and the classroom, students learn the essentials of research, from designing experiments to writing technical papers to presenting at conferences.

SuperUROP is administered by the MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). As of May 2020, 922 students had graduated from the program.
