The EECS Department has developed a new “Super” UROP in which students can commit to a year-long research project working with both faculty and industry mentors and earning a certificate. Department Head Anantha Chandrakasan has spearheaded this effort to build a deeper research experience for EECS undergraduates with the potential to better prepare students who want to continue in graduate school or enter industry or even be involved with startups. The new "Super" UROP experience will be available starting Fall, 2012.
