Undergraduate Research

Collage of CS students engaged in hands-on research.

Students play a significant role in the department's commitment and focus of discovery, research, and creative work.  They work alongside top-notch faculty who are exploring emerging data-rich and informatics-enabled disciplines and contributing to those fundamental advances needed to address challenges in the environment, food, health, energy, and security and increasing the competitiveness of Iowa and the nation. They are part of the team and gain firsthand experience while connecting with other students who have adventurous minds. 

Getting involved in research offers undergraduates a valuable opportunity to gain skills, to learn more about a field of study, and to make a difference in today's world.
