Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Undergraduates have always been an important element in our research program. Students co-write publications and present research presentations at conferences. Research programs are funded by a wide variety of government and industrial grants.

Otherwise known as the URP, Rensselaer's Undergraduate Research Program is a campus-wide approach to research. Students can research for class credit or for funding.
