Undergraduate research

Research is experiential education and a complement to your classroom experience at ASU. As an undergraduate, you can work with faculty, graduate students and other undergraduates to transform your knowledge into actual practice –whether it is developing alternative energy from sunlight, next-generation nanoelectronics or creating your own entrepreneurial experience to launch a business.
