Undergraduate Fellowships

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship in Information Technology (SURF-IT) provides a unique 10-week summer research opportunity for UCI undergraduates to become immersed in IT-related research and applications. Participants have the opportunity to choose from a variety of challenging research projects.

Under the personal guidance of a UCI faculty mentor, students gain first-hand experience and training in state-of-the-art facilities and techniques. A series of seminars provides opportunities to build knowledge and enhance dialogue about telecommunication and information technology systems and applications. At the conclusion of the program, students share their research accomplishments by presenting their findings at the SURF-IT Poster Session and Closing Reception. 

This program is designed to help students develop the knowledge and skills that will propel them into graduate studies or careers in the various, multidisciplinary fields of telecommunications and information technology.
