Undergraduate students are encouraged to become involved with research under the mentorship of our faculty members.
Once an undergraduate research opportunity or independent study is secured, students can register for MAE 498/499 in order to gain credit towards a Technical Elective. Students must register for 3 credits of MAE 498/499 in order for it to count towards one of these electives. A maximum of 6 total credits are permitted from all of the courses MAE 496, MAE 498, and MAE 499 combined.
Start a project to build skills and gain real-world experience for your career. The Experiential Learning Network's Project Portal is the easiest place to get started! Once you start a project, you can also pursue an ELN Digital Badge to display your accomplishments to future employers and graduate schools.
