Student Life

Research Opportunities

Imagine being involved in leading-edge research into affordable solar energy, or the development of new materials that fight bacteria.

As an engineering student at a research-intensive university like the U of A, you are at a distinct advantage. Many engineering professors are not only dedicated teachers, but also world-leading researchers. While your professors bring their knowledge and experience to you in the classroom, you also have an opportunity to participate in important research.

For details on undergraduate student research opportunities, visit the Dean’s Research Awards website.

Undergraduate students can also apply for funding designed to stimulate and support your interest in research through the university’s Undergraduate Research Initiative and the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Undergraduate Student Research Awards Program.
