Undergraduate Summer Research

Research offers an excellent opportunity for professional development in many fields of interest at NJIT. It gives an individual the ability to think on their own and handle open-ended problems. It also gives them the discipline to take a problem towards its solution. As a student-centered research institution, NJIT is committed to providing opportunities for research participation beginning at the undergraduate level. We invite undergraduate students from across the campus to explore a research topic of interest, under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Please click on the links below for further information:
