Isaac Dykeman presents his CS research at a Rice undergraduate symposium.
Research Opportunities for Undergraduates
Rice's CS department is unique in terms of the number of research opportunities offered to undergraduates. The CS faculty regularly encourage and invite undergraduates to participate in their research, and remain engaged in the student's progress. Drawing undergraduates into their own research groups allows the CS faculty to offer our students the best of both worlds: the interpersonal relationships found in a small teaching-oriented college and the chance to choose from a rich assortment of developing projects most often found in big research institution.
Academic Year and Summer Options
Students can get involved in faculty research during the academic year or through summer internships.
The best way to find a computer science research
position is to determine which faculty member is doing work that interests you most, and ask them if they have a place for you on their research team. Students may also propose a research topic to a professor and if it's approved, earn credit for research work done.
