BERC Undergraduate

BERC U is a community for undergraduates to plug in to all the opportunities that BERC has to offer.  We help undergrads find their passion within energy and resources then help them take action on that passion.  BERC U offers educational events, graduate student mentorship programs, professional networking opportunities, hands on project based learning, as well as social events to find like minded people.


How to get involved in BERC U?



We offer a mentorship program in which undergraduates are paired with graduate and MBA students to learn about energy and resources in research, policy or business.

During the past semester the mentorship program grew to over 20 pairs that learned from each other and participated in fun mentorship social events like the bi annual mentorship games.



Participate in wide ranging educational, professional, and social events including:

  1. Industry Leader Panels - Learn from industry leaders about how to go from undergrad to top professional.

  2. Graduate student Panels - Learn the path from Undergrad to Grad school.

  3. Social Events - Likeminded people make great friends.

  4. Surf Trips!
