There are many options for undergraduate students to explore research.

The Dean’s Research Awards program gives students experience working in research labs, conducting their own projects and presenting their findings (see the Dean’s Research Award project list for a list of available projects — or just approach a professor whose work interests you and ask about research opportunities).

Engineering students can also get hands-on research experience through the NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award program. And the Faculty of Engineering Research Opportunities website is a virtual space where students and professors can connect with research opportunities.
