2018 I-SURF Fellows

I-SURF Fellows are expected to adhere to specific research and general conduct rules.

In 2018, the I-SURF program welcomed 43 undergraduates from nine universities—Ajou University, Chung-Ang University, Dankook University, Hanyang University, Kookmin University, Kyung Hee University, Seoul Women's University, Sogang University and Sungkyunkwan University—in South Korea to UC Irvine. They worked in teams of one to five students, conducting Computer Science research under the guidance of UCI faculty mentors.
