Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate research opportunities are available and encouraged for those CSE/CIS undergraduates with high academic standing and an interest to participate in active CSE research projects. Students of junior and senior standing are typically most qualified and desired, but advanced sophomore and freshman students will also be considered.

To begin the process, please complete and submit the application form provided below. You will need to choose up to 3 faculty members that best relate to your research interest (a faculty directory and research can be found here).
