About our program

Attention all undergraduate students! Are you looking for an opportunity to dive deep into your area of study and gain valuable research experience?

The University of Notre Dame’s College of Engineering presents the Engineering SUmmer Research Experiences (E-SURE) for Undergraduates Program. This program provides opportunities for undergraduates to experience hands-on participation in research in many areas of engineering and computer science. You will work closely with faculty on a variety of current research projects and benefit from a number of social and educational activities organized to enrich your experience.

Join our community of scholars and work alongside experienced faculty members to conduct cutting-edge research that could pave the way for future breakthroughs in your field. Whether you're interested in science, computing, technology, engineering, math, our program offers a variety of research projects to choose from, so you're sure to find something that matches your interests. Plus, with the chance to collaborate with other driven students, learn about graduate student opportunities and how to apply for graduate fellowships, and present your findings at a poster session, this program is the perfect way to boost your academic portfolio. Apply now to unlock your full potential this summer!

Student housing and food costs are covered by the faculty advisors. Some of the REU positions may also have a stipend. We are currently accepting applications from US citizens, permanent residents and international students already enrolled at a US university as an F-1 or J-1 student. Students who are in those groups traditionally underrepresented in engineering (women, members of underrepresented minorities, and those with disabilities) are particularly encouraged to apply.
