Undergraduate Research Experiences
The Department of Engineering hosts several research programs dedicated to conducting cutting edge research in a variety of fields. Directed by individual faculty members, each research program focuses on a different aspect of engineering. The programs and associated lab facilities are funded by private foundations and government agencies including NSF, the Hearst Foundation, and NIH. Outcomes from these programs include: 1) Unique research opportunities for undergraduate students, 2) student presentations at international conferences, 3) student publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals and conference proceedings, 4) outreach education experiences, and 5) training for graduate school programs.
