Undergraduate Research Opportunities
The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) provides academically qualified undergraduate students an opportunity to gain experience on campus by working part-time as a member of a research team including faculty and graduate students. The UROP program provides compensation that is competitive with most local employment and entails the major advantage of providing on-campus stimulating work experience to enrich the student's total educational experience.
The qualifications required for participating in the UROP program include:
- Students must be enrolled in a degree program in the College of Engineering and Science and must be in good academic standing.
- Students must have an overall grade point average of 2.5 or better.
The selection of students for the UROP program will be made by the faculty responsible for the various research projects offering the employment.
Applicants will automatically be considered for suitable employment on research projects throughout the College regardless of the department in which they are enrolled.
