Undergraduate Research

In the College of Science and Engineering, undergraduates in science, engineering, mathematics and computer science have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty researchers on projects that address contemporary problems. This real-world research will prepare you for top graduate programs and postdoctoral training at internationally recognized institutions.

Undergraduate Research
Hands-On Learning

All engineering and computer science students complete an industry-sponsored project in the Project Center.

Participate in Practical Research

Science and math students have ample opportunity to participate in on-campus research, summer research, and industry-sponsored projects.


Research experience extends beyond what you learn in the classroom, assisting your development as a creative, persistent and responsible leader. You may even graduate as the co-author of a scientific publication.

Seattle University is committed to making research experiences available to as many students as possible. We have established a strong undergraduate research program and the College of Science and Engineering has committed more than $1 million in grants, endowments and gift funds to support the program and offer paid research positions for qualified students working under the mentorship of a Seattle University faculty member. We also offer research-based courses in science and engineering during the academic year.
