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.

For research opportunities, many faculty will send an email to the engineering majors list in the middle of the fall semester. For information on a particular research, please contact the faculty directly.
