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: Summer Undergraduate Research Experience SURE.  This opportunity is a way to learn in a hands­-on 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.

Opportunities in Engineering Conference (OPPS)
