Undergraduate Research

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.
