Student Research Opportunities

At UNK, faculty members view student involvement in research as a part of the educational process and actively encourage it. Undergraduate research experiences teach young engineering students to work collaboratively, think critically and problem-solve creatively.

These unique opportunities prepare students for graduate study and engineering careers. There are several ways for UNK undergraduates to get involved in research:

Resources, Programs and Organizations for Students

Additionally, Engineering Foundations undergraduates interested in research should connect with their departmental advisers to identify research projects or areas of interest, and talk with other undergraduates about their experiences.

A good way to begin the conversation is to ask your instructor about his or her own research experiences, or to check out the 'research interests' portion of the instructor biographies on the Faculty page.

Don't hesitate to be proactive about asking to meet with faculty members -- it is appreciated and encouraged!
