The University of Texas at Austin Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering (UT PGE) 2016 Summer Undergraduate Research Internship (SURI) program runs from May 31 - Aug. 6.
SURI brings together innovative undergraduate minds from prestigious universities across the country to UT PGE to research hot energy topics with world-class faculty members.
Interns receive an insider look at graduate level work conducted at UT PGE, home to the No. 1 petroleum engineering graduate program in the country according to the 2017 U.S. News & World Report. In addition to participating in meaningful academic research, interns learn about the diverse areas of petroleum and geosystems engineering and build strong relationships with their cohort.
SURI is a rewarding 10-week program, offering a $4,000 stipend. In addition, UT PGE provides funding to travel to Austin and housing in an on-campus residence hall that includes a stipend for meals.
