CU Research Showcase

Would you like to get a head start on research and explore your interests during your undergraduate years? The Your Own Undergraduate Research Experience at CU Program (YOU’RE@CU) may be for you! YOU'RE@CU is an exciting opportunity to gain practical research experience in engineering by linking with a graduate student mentor. Get hands-on experience in your undergraduate years that will inspire you to make a world of difference! You’ll work on a research project 3-5 hours per week and participate in a 1-credit hour seminar course on research practices (Mondays at 5pm). You’ll create your own research hypothesis and go through the research process culminating in a research paper and poster session.

Applicants must be engineering majors in good academic standing.
