The goal of the SIIRE project is to increase the number of students that complete a bachelor’s and master’s engineering degree program with experience to tackle real-life problems in industry. SIIRE provides students a structured pathway to success starting as early as the sophomore year and continuing on through graduate studies. Integrated industry-based internships, on-campus university-based research and renewable scholarships provide the cornerstones of the SIIRE program.
This program advances the discovery and dissemination of research that bridges undergraduate experiences with the attainment of graduate engineering degrees. Furthermore, it strengthens industry partnerships and develops highly trained workforces, by systematically creating a pipeline of diverse engineering professionals.
