Description 
For those students considering a career in research, an undergraduate research experience is a great place to start. The program provides students the opportunity to work side by side with RPI faculty and graduate students to investigate a broad range of important and interesting problems at the forefront of Biomedical Engineering and Chemical Engineering. Not only do students gain valuable hands-on experience, they also have the opportunity to see first hand some of the world-class research under way at RPI and find out how discoveries made here benefit society. During the summer research experience, participants make short progress presentations to their peers during program meetings, attend presentation skills workshops, make a formal poster presentation of their research experience at the end of the program, and submit a written final report describing the results of their research. Many students go on to present their results at national and international conferences and publish them in scientific journals.
