Undergrad Research @ UO
Research is an essential part of the undergraduate experience. The skills you’ll gain by working on real problems outside the classroom are invaluable for post-graduate life.
Protip: You can print posters at the UO AAA Output Room.
Research credits are required for physics majors, but if you would like to do additional research, you can look into securing your own funding to support you monetarily while you perform the research. Grants and awards are available to support the research itself, travel costs, materials and so on. Writing applications to secure your own funding is excellent practice for graduate school and future careers.
