Transfer-to-Excellence Research Experiences for Undergraduates (TTE REU), a competitive merit-based program, seeks to inspire California community college students through research at UC Berkeley so that they will ultimately transfer and complete their Bachelor’s degree in science and engineering. The TTE REU program is a residential program providing nine-weeks of hands-on research experiences in the laboratories of UC Berkeley professors. TTE participants also have access to enrichment activities to enhance their overall preparation and confidence to pursue studies in science and engineering and, eventually, a career that applies their technical education. This program was jointly funded by an NSF Site award and the Center for E3S.
Exciting Research Areas
While hosted by E3S, the TTE Summer Research Program provided research experience for undergraduates who were enrolled in community colleges. See the 2011-2021 past projects here. See the 2022 and beyond projects here.
