​​​​​​​​​STEM Research Opportunities

​​​​Undergraduate research opportunities allow students to utilize cutting-edge research techniques, alongside professionals in their field, to pursue new knowledge and advance their field of study.  Research opportunities provide students with practical ways to apply knowledge and theory to practice.  By engaging in research, students have the opportunity to develop skills in written and oral communication, problem solving, critical thinking, and teamwork.  Some students are even given the opportunity to present at conferences or publish their work, which can significantly enhance their resume.  Taking advantage of research opportunities is especially beneficial for those planning to pursue graduate studies or a career in academia.​
