Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Kettering University supports a number of research opportunities for undergraduates.  A student may be sponsored to work on a project in a research lab during the school term or the work term.  The Center for Culminating Undergraduate Experiences (CCUE) provides an opportunity for students to conduct research work for completion of a thesis.  Interested students should talk with sponsoring faculty in his/her degree department, the CCUE office, or the Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) for more information.  Reviewing recently awarded projects and research news may also be helpful.
