How do Students get started doing Research?
The Undergraduate Research Office, located at 180 S. College Ave, is open every day during the week for the convenience of students and faculty alike; feel free to stop by, introduce yourself, and pick up some of our brochures/flyers.
Whenever students are considering getting involved in research, our office recommends that they set up a time to come in for an advisement appointment with one of our staff. These advisement appointments provide general information about a variety of available research options, as well as information on how to identify and approach a faculty researcher with whom the student would like to work. Again, we encourage all interested students to come in for advisement: to schedule an appointment, please email us at UndergradResearch@udel.edu.
In the meantime, this website includes introductory information to almost all of our available research programs, and we encourage students to browse through it. In particular, be sure to check out the faculty project listings, which lists many of the UD faculty who are currently involved in a variety of interesting research and who are willing to work with undergraduates. While there are a number of options for engaging in undergraduate research, the first step is always to locate a faculty sponsor.
