The Stanford University Mechanical Engineering Department conducts a program called the Summer Undergraduate Research Institute (SURI). To be eligible, a Stanford undergraduate must be rising into their sophomore, junior or senior year in the fall quarter following the summer research experience. SURI is a fully immersive program in academic research. Each summer DEL accepts two to  four undergraduate Research Interns.

Many of the DEL research interns participate in writing a research or technical paper for the ASEE Annual conference:
