About the Undergraduate Research Expo

LAUNCH: Undergraduate Research and the Texas A&M Chapter of Sigma Xi: The Scientific Research Society invite faculty and undergraduate research programs to participate in the annual Undergraduate Research Expo, October 5, 2016, 4-6pm in Rudder Exhibit Hall. The purpose of the Undergraduate Research Expo is to make undergraduates aware of research opportunities across campus (in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, as well as business, education, humanities, social sciences, and arts) by providing a venue where undergraduate students can discover research opportunities by talking with faculty and current undergraduate researchers. 

Come for the experience, walk away with a prize! Sigma Xi will be raffling away prizes from each of the represented departments and colleges, so be sure to get a ticket and listen for your number as you look at the latest undergraduate research opportunities available to you at Texas A&M! The raffle will begin at 4:00 PM and the last ticket will be called before 6:00 PM. We hope to see you there!
How it Works
The Undergraduate Research Expo is a venue that allows students to seek out undergraduate research opportunities here at Texas A&M University. A variety of colleges, departments, and programs will be there to answer questions you have about getting involved in research within your field of interest. The Undergraduate Research Expo operates on a come-and-go basis over a span of two hours, making it easy to accommodate students’ diverse schedules. If you are unsure if research fits into your undergraduate degree plan, stop by and check out what is going on in your college or department. If you are actively seeking a research position in one of the represented colleges or departments, it never hurts to come prepared—think about what kind of research you are interested in and what your future goals are, do your homework about programs ahead of time, dress business casual and bring a polished resume. More tips for getting started in research can be found on our Getting Started in Research page. You never know what could inspire you or spark a question that turns into a research topic, so drop by the Undergraduate Research Expo this year and find out more about getting involved with undergraduate research!
Benefits
One benefit of attending the Undergraduate Research Expo is the opportunity to network with like-minded Aggies. You can create a vast network of departmental, collegiate, and interdisciplinary connections that will lead you to a research opportunity and other future prospects. This event gives you a unique chance to get to talk face-to-face with those involved in the different undergraduate programs around campus, meet the undergraduates already participating in research, and discuss with faculty members any questions or concerns you have had about getting involved in one of the many different facets of undergraduate research on campus.
