Undergraduate Research

In our department, undergraduate research is an endeavor between an individual professor and a student which either party can initiate.  If you are interested in undergraduate research, there are three primary resources:

  1. Auburn University Undergraduate Research Program 
  2. Speak to professors in the department whose work interests you. Several of our professors have engaged in undergraduate research with students in the past in several different ways  through a course in special problems (INSY 4960) for which you receive course credit, as a paid researcher from a professor's grant or as an unpaid volunteer.
  3. REU - Research Experience for Undergraduates (may be found through is a program sponsored by the NSF where undergraduates attend a research university, usually during the summer, and conduct research.
