Undergraduate Research Opportunities

There are multiple on-campus and off-campus research opportunities for undergraduate students

Undergraduate Student Research Involvement Program

At the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia University, the faculty takes an active role in research, which is funded by both private and government sources. Faculty members view student involvement in research as a part of the educational process and actively encourage it.

Many students at Columbia SEAS are destined for the professional research environment, while others may work in professional capacities in tandem with the research function. It is the purpose of the program and this guide to enable undergraduate students to participate.

Participation in the program is voluntary, although students are advised that the faculty expects students to honor any commitment they may make.
