Undergraduate independent research in Computer Science is done as an Independent Study or as a Senior Thesis (which typically grows out of a prior Independent Study experience). To find out about the research interests of the CS faculty, look at the Faculty Research Guide. You may also want to examine the archival list of undergraduate thesis topics and advisors from prior years. In the Spring, research students participate in the university-wide Meeting of the Minds celebration of undergraduate research. Students looking for summer research opportunities should also check out the National Science Foundation-sponsored Research Experience for Undergraduates program, including the student-oriented REU area list.
