SHINE 2015 Cohorts
SHINE 2016 Cohorts

SHINE students are shown here with their SURE mentors during one of the Friday lunches (SURE students are undergraduates from around the nation who conduct research at USC School of Engineering during the summer). SURE mentors offer a separate type of mentorship in addition to the Ph.D. students and professors who guide the actual research work of the SHINE students.

We’re looking forward to seeing your application materials and hopefully seeing you in Summer 2017. If you want updates about the SHINE program, click here. Also, review this checklist in advance.
