Research Assistant Opportunities

Participation in research provides many benefits to students. Regardless of career goals after graduation - such as obtaining an engineering or research position, going to graduate school, or a career in academia - research is an excellent way to help students prepare themselves for successful careers. Participation in research and learning the process and rigor of knowledge discovery improves critical thinking and provides a foundation for lifelong learning. Participation in research is especially helpful in assisting students to distinguish themselves when applying to graduate schools or positions after graduation.

Students interested in participating in research are encouraged to directly contact faculty who are working in their areas of interest. Most of our areas of active research are described as part of our listing of research laboratories.

Current opportunities for research assistantships are listed in the menu to the left.
