Undergraduate Research

We strongly encourage undergraduates to participate in undergraduate research, which provides you with hands-on experience in the laboratory under the guidance of our outstanding faculty. This experience gives you skills and knowledge that will help prepare you for graduate study or work in industry. 

Participating in undergraduate research gives you the opportunity to:

  • Work one-on-one with internationally distinguished faculty;
  • Participate in cutting-edge research projects with far-reaching impact;
  • Make significant contributions to a field you care about; and
  • Enhance your competitiveness for graduate or professional school admission or high-level employment.

To gain academic credit for undergraduate research, learn about special studies courses (i.e. CHEM 199).
