Nichole Clarke '18, a former SuperUROP scholar, is now an EECS graduate student and Siebel Scholar.
Ava Soleimany '16, a former SuperUROP scholar, co-authored a paper published in Science. She is now a graduate student and co-director of a popular Independent Activities Period class on deep learning.
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.

SuperUROP is administered by the MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS).
In December 2019, more than 100 SuperUROP scholars presented posters and discussed their research in progress at the fall SuperUROP Showcase in the Stata Center.
Interested in SuperUROP for 2020-2021? Come to an information session on Tuesday, March 3, 2020 from 12-1, OR Wednesday, March 11, 2020, from 4-5. Both sessions are in 34-401, and refreshments will be served.
For an example of a SuperUROP project, view this video of 2018-2019 SuperUROP scholar Garrett Souza '19 (above), who analyzed the effect of visual media on implicit biases.
Then view this montage from the April 2019 SuperUROP Showcase poster session, followed by 12 brief videos of 2018-2019 SuperUROP scholars presenting their research results.
