Find Your ELO
The best place to start your search for a UROP is the UROP website. You can sort opportunities based on sponsoring department, lab, or center and/or by term (Fall, IAP, Spring). Some UROP listings may also be listed on Handshake.
While many faculty, labs and other research groups post UROP opportunities on the UROP website, not all do. Some projects require direct outreach (“cold-emailing”). Don’t worry! MIT professors expect students to ask about UROPs, and we’ve got you covered with plenty of advice about how to approach faculty members about possible opportunities.
