Tutoring

Visit the Student Resource Center (SRC) for free tutoring in the Knowledge Foundry. Check the signs posted on the door of the SRC or around the department for a complete schedule. 

Faculty Mentorship

In the spring of your sophomore year, you will be assigned a faculty mentor with whom you can meet to discuss broader academic and career directions.

During our Career Advising Fair for ÉCEE (CAFÉ) sessions, faculty members will be available to answer your questions about degree track, career directions, research opportunities and more. Watch the Department Events calendar for upcoming dates. 

Research & Career Development

Here are some tips for getting involved in research projects as an undergraduate: 

  • Visit CU Experts to see what faculty members in the department are currently researching.
  • Have an idea of what you’re interested in, and read some publications from a faculty member you’re interested in working with.
  • Plan to meet in their office hours to discuss ideas for original research or to join a lab. View the meeting as a job interview - come prepared with a CV/resume highlighting relevant skills and questions about their publications or research endeavors. This will show that you are not only interested in what they do, but are also committed to their area of study.
  • Try not to be intimidated. It can be a scary thing to approach faculty, but they are committed to students and welcome undergraduates who are interested and passionate about research.
