Participation in SURP 2019 was a great experience for me since I got to use theoretical knowledge acquired from the engineering courses, that I’ve taken in the past, and learned even more practical knowledge in geotechnical engineering field. I really liked being involved in this kind of scientific work - it inspired and motivated me to do only better and set higher bars.
What I wish was different
I wish the program was longer, so that we would have more time to work on the research and get more results.
If you will ever have a chance to participate in any kind of summer undergraduate research program, don't miss it - it is a great boost of experience, that will definitely have a positive effect on your future career.
