GERS hosts two events per year to recruit diverse graduate student cohorts into the College of Enigneering at UW-Madison.
Summer Undergraduate Research Experiences (SURE)
Each summer, GERS recruits advanced undergraduates to participate in a 10-week research program, SURE. This opportunity is a way to learn in a handson way about conducting research, be exposed to other disciplines, network, take part in social activities, and gain the tools necessary to succeed in graduate school.
