The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Irvine is pleased to announce an exceptional opportunity for students interested in pursuing an advanced degree in environmental engineering. A select number of undergraduate students will participate in a six week research experience, including a fully funded two week trip to Australia, to learn about water challenges facing Australia and the actions that are being taken relative to research, policy, and infrastructure engineering. The program is open to UCI, UCSD and UCLA undergraduate students who are U.S. citizens, and would be qualified for the Environmental Engineering graduate program upon completion of their undergraduate degree. This includes, but is not limited to, Civil and Environmental Engineering students, as the Environmental Engineering graduate program typically attracts students from several fields of engineering and natural sciences. The ultimate goal of the program is to encourage more UC undergraduate students to pursue doctoral studies focused on a pressing water challenge facing society.
