Undergraduate Research

Female student works on project on floorThe Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers many opportunities for undergraduate research with faculty. Look at some faculty's current research interests and contact them for more information. This program provides students with authentic, hands-on research experiences and prepares students early on for subsequent research opportunities. Also check out the  Undergraduate Research Award Program to encourage students to seek out a faculty-mentored experience in developing a research grant proposal. The  Undergraduate Summer Scholars Program is another way to conduct research during the summer term. 

If you're a first-year student, check out Miami's First Year Research Experience (FYRE). For more information about all fo Miami's research opportunities check out Miami's  Office of Research for Undergraduates.
