Summer Undergraduate Program

The Vanderbilt Institute for Surgery and Engineering’s Summer Undergraduate program affords students the opportunity to work side-by-side graduate students and faculty on active research projects.

Students in biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science spend ten weeks in VISE labs under the supervision of a VISE affiliate faculty member. The paid program gives undergraduates first-hand experience in laboratory research.

The program concludes with a student-led VISE seminar in which each undergraduate gives a five minute presentation and answers audience questions.
