Engineering Undergraduate Research Program (EURP)

The College of Engineering Undergraduate Research Program (EURP) is designed to involve outstanding undergraduate students in research projects and encourage these students to consider graduate school.

The major features of the program are:

  • EURP provides funding for up to 450 hours of paid research experience
    • Participants in MAE, ECE, CEE, and EED are paid $12/hour. Participants in BE are paid $10/hour.
  • Renewal of your EURP appointment for the next semester (or summer) is contingent on approval from your research advisor.
  • Participants are encouraged to present their results at an appropriate professional venue (technical meeting, peer-reviewed publication, USU Undergraduate Research Showcase, Utah Conference on Undergraduate Research, Research on the Hill, etc.).
    • Participants are also eligible for additional matching funds when traveling to present their research at one of these venues.

To be eligible, you must:

  • Be admitted into the professional program by the start of the proposed project.
  • Expected to work 10 hours/week, starting in Spring 2022
  • Proposed timeline must allow 3 semesters of work before graduating
    • Summer can count as 0 semesters, 1 semester at 10 hours/week, or 2 semesters at 20 hours/week
    • EXCEPTION: Students admitted into their concurrent BS/MS program may propose projects shorter than 3 semesters in scope, but must explain how the proposed work relates to their expected graduate research.
  • Applications for Fall 2021 are anticipated in November
