Office of Undergraduate Research

What is undergraduate research? It is carrying out authentic, original investigations under the mentorship of a faculty member or other researcher. Undergraduate research at ECU is a fantastic way to investigate possible career paths, learn techniques that you may not learn in a classroom, and to see whether you want to consider doing graduate work after you earn your bachelor’s degree. ECU believes that all students should have access to quality undergraduate research opportunities within any field of study. Learn more about ECU’s undergraduate research opportunities, our research awards, and how we honor our undergraduate researchers in their pursuit to make ECU the next great national university.
