Undergraduate Research

Students explore their own interests and participate in faculty research through honors, projects, individual-study courses, and the UMW Summer Science Institute. The University is committed to undergraduate research and offers funding for such projects on a competitive basis. Recent student-project topics include: computing for mobile devices, robotics, game programming, graphical interface design, and client natural language processing. The department also encourages students to submit papers for technical conference presentation, which can jumpstart a promising research-and-development career.
