Undergraduate Research

Many faculty members provide opportunities for undergraduate students to get involved in research. This will help pave way for graduate studies. An undergraduate student working on Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) research is shown below. More opportunities for funding for research and travel can be found at the University Undergraduate Research Center page.
