Undergraduate Scholars Program


The Wireless Health Institute at UCLA Engineering is currently recruiting participants for our 2015 Summer Undergraduate Scholars Program.

Advances in engineering and computer science are enabling the design of powerful home and mobile technologies that can augment functional independence and daily activities of people with physical impairments, disabilities, chronic diseases, and the accumulative impairments associated with aging. The Wireless Health Institute at UCLA is a collaboration between UCLA Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Engineering and Applied Sciences, Business, the Clinical Translational Science Institute for medical research, and the Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center aimed at developing new technology essential to the next generation of health care. We encourage undergraduates to get involved with our Institute by participating in our Summer Undergraduate Scholars Program.

This 8 – 10 week PAID summer internship program provides undergraduates the opportunity to gain hands-on research experience at WHI labs; to work with WHI faculty, staff and graduate students; and to participate in research, professional development, and social activities with other WHI undergraduate scholars.

Application Deadline – February 27, 2015.

Eligibility –
US Citizen or Permanent Residency
