An undergraduate research experience is an important complement in pursuing an education in the science and mathematics disciplines. It provides students with experiences useful in focusing and refining academic and career decisions, developing problem-solving skills, and integrating what is learned in the classroom. Student researchers develop and demonstrate skills such as the ability to work in a group and be a part of a team, meeting deadlines, oral and communication skills through presentations at local and national professional conferences, and preparing manuscripts for publications.
When conducting research in lab spaces it is important to know the safety protocols, information which can be found on the Safety Manuals and Resources page.
