The WISE REWU Program is sponsored in part by the Offices of the Provost and the Vice President for Research, and the support and cooperation of several departments in the Colleges of Arts & Sciences, Engineering and Applied Science, Pharmacy, Nursing and Medicine. It is a twelve week program that encourages the participation of talented young women in the science, mathematics and engineering fields, with a goal of exposing these talents to diverse areas of research early in their education and to encourage the pursuit of advanced studies in these fields.
Students have the immense opportunity of performing undergraduate research alongside UC’s leading scientists and engineers in a wide range of fields. Some of the disciplines explored last year included: Anthropology, Biology, Bio-medical Engineering, Chemistry, Communications, Communications Sciences and Disorders, Geology, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Molecular Genetics, Nursing, Physics, Science and Health. The young researchers share their research findings in a special presentation session held in Engineering Research Center at the end of summer.
