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.
