Many Aerospace students engage in research for credit or pay by contacting our faculty directly. Below are recommended steps for students to take that will make a good impression with the faculty:
- Explore the research interests of the faculty in your areas of interest through the Aerospace website’s faculty bio and research pages. Select two or three professors whose research areas interest you.
- Contact the faculty by email, expressing interest in working with them on a research project. Attach a resume or transcript if possible. Request to meet with them.
- If you haven’t heard back after 7 to 10 days, follow up with the faculty member. Often, stopping by the professor’s office is the best way.
- If none of the above works, schedule an appointment with Undergraduate Student Coordinator Linda Weiss for more help.
