Learn more about the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) below for ways that you can get involved, and get access to connecting with top talent.
Attend UROP Symposium
UROP sponsors the UCI Undergraduate Research Symposium, an annual event that allows hundreds of undergraduates the opportunity to present the results of their research or creative activities in a professional setting to the entire UCI campus and surrounding community.
Share your knowledge
One way to make an impact is to share your story, expertise, and experience with UCI students. We are always looking for guest speakers for on campus or virtual events. It’s also a great way to showcase your company to future and prospective employees!
