  • Undergraduate Research Opportunities in MIME Information Session
    All MIME students are invited to attend an information session about undergraduate research opportunities in MIME. Hear about the top five reasons to get involved in undergraduate research, examples of past undergraduate research projects, as well as news and future directions of research in our school.  In addition, a new initiative to provide funding for both students and faculty advisors in undergraduate research projects will be announced.   This is an excellent way to learn about faculty members' research and get involved in projects. For honors students, this could be the basis for an HC thesis.  Even if you don’t yet feel ready to begin research or are not sure about your interests, attending this event will help you to explore opportunities and make connections. RSVP.
