UPLIFT: Undergraduate Program for Leaders In Future Transformation

The UPLIFT program is an academic year research program for incoming freshman that have been selected to participate in research projects across the College of Engineering. Students will engage directly with faculty and graduate student mentors over the course of the semester and produce and present final research presentations.

UPLIFT Students are paired with a CoE Faculty member, participating in research and developing a research project in the fall, then potentially developing a plan for a 4 SH Directed Study course in the Spring, and concluding by applying for a Summer REU.

Program Years:
Year 2: Fall 2021 – Spring 2022
Year 1: Fall 2020 – Spring 2021
