In addition to graduate students, the department strongly encourages qualified undergraduate students to get involved with research. A significant number of students have conducted award-winning research and have published results with their faculty mentors in high impact peer-reviewed journals. Students can conduct research during the academic year and/or the summer. Research opportunities are available in various areas in which faculty conduct research.
The McNair Achievement Program, directed by Professor Angelo J. Perna offers a number of research opportunities as well to students belonging in minority and underrepresented groups.
