Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)

UROP projects are research-based intellectual collaborations of MIT faculty and undergraduates. Undergraduates may participate in each phase of research activity: developing a research plan, proposal writing, conducting research, analyzing data, and presenting results in oral and written form.

UROP projects can take place at any time during the academic year and/or summer, and are available in any academic department or interdisciplinary laboratory.

UROP's website tells you everything you need to know before you begin a UROP, including how to find a UROP, and what to do after you have found a project. Visit the site today to learn more about how to find a project, how to get credit or arrange for pay -- and more.

In addition to traditional UROP experiences, please consider the following two special UROP programs:
