Summer Research


Make your summers count

The Summer Undergraduate Research in Engineering (SURE) program provides summer research opportunities for U-M undergraduates; the Rackham Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP) serves undergraduates from outside U-M.

Apply for a Summer Research program

You are welcome to contact faculty if you have additional, specific questions regarding these projects. After your application is received (in late January), you will be contacted and asked to list your top three projects, in order of preference. You are also welcome to list these preferences on your application.

There is no requirement to contact the faculty mentor of your selected project(s) before being selected. The matching process is performed by an internal committee and applicants are chosen based on their application to fill the number of spots available to the department. Selected students are then matched to faculty mentors by the committee. You are welcome to submit letters to strengthen your application, but they are not required. If you can get a letter from a project sponsor for example, it would be a good idea to have them submit that.

Upcoming BME projects will be listed starting in November; the application period runs through late January. Accepted applicants rank their top three projects in order of preference, and an internal committee matches applicants with projects.

Projects are added as they become available. Please check back for updated listings.
