"The SuperUROP program has built upon the strong UROP tradition to create a truly unique experience for MIT students. Through its year-long research opportunity, SuperUROP promotes direct interaction with faculty and industry sponsors, cultivates student creativity and professional development, and encourages students to consider the ethical and entrepreneurial aspects of their work. I expect we will see more and more SuperUROP research projects that do not come to an "end" in May, but rather, establish permanent homes in labs, beta-testing programs in industry, or practical applications in the world."

— Susan Hockfield, MIT President Emerita and Professor of Neuroscience
