Research Training Courses (xx-198)

Freshmen (2nd semester) and sophomores in the Dietrich College are eligible to take Research Training courses (xx-198) if they have a QPA of at least a 3.0. This is a wonderful way for first and second year students to make a connection with a faculty member and get involved in cutting edge research. The list of research opportunities changes every semester.  As a student, you should identify the research course you would be interested in participating in and contact the faculty member to discuss the opportunity further.

The research training courses are utilized as units towards graduation but can not count for the GenEd program or for your major/minor. Often times these opportunities can develop into ones that can be counted towards your major/minor or that involved a summer work/paid experience.
