Here, real-world research is not reserved for faculty and graduate students. Getting hands-on research experience is essential and rewarding for undergraduates. Research is part of our mission as a land-grant university, and we value its role in learning and outreach. And it will help you prepare for a successful career – no matter what you choose to do.

CSU biologist Kristen Ruegg is working with UCLA researchers to study which bird species are most impacted by the solar industry.
A CSU team is leading an effort to make cadmium-telluride solar cells even more efficient by focusing on a classic engineering bottleneck in their design.
Ruegg received the NSF Career Award Grant of 1.18 M dollars to continue her research into migratory birds. Her team will study the migration of 11 species, the first empirical test of the theory that the individuals from the same breeding site migrating to the same wintering site promotes local adaptation in wintering areas.
They offer a cost-effective synthetic pathway for conventional and new PHAs with enhanced properties.
