Discovery Learning Apprenticeship Program

Whether helping develop new diagnostic techniques for heart disease, or detecting the effects of nuclear waste, discovery learning apprentices make the most of their time at CU Boulder by supplementing classroom instruction with real-world engineering experience.

Undergraduate engineering students in the apprenticeship program earn hourly wages while engaging in research with college faculty and graduate students. Positions are announced in early April, and applications are accepted through the end of April for apprenticeships during the following academic year. 

*Please note that due to a new application system the application for students to apply for 2017/2018 positions won't open until April 17th.*

*Check back here soon to see link where you can view the projects that have been submitted by faculty for 2017/2018*

As an undergraduate discovery learning apprentice, you’ll work alongside graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, faculty, and industry representatives, as collaborative partners on original research. We find that students bring a fresh perspective to the research team while also learning from their more experienced partners.
