How to Get Involved in Undergraduate Research

Upper-division undergraduates have opportunities to work in a research environment with faculty members who are conducting current research in the various fields of mechanical engineering.

Bioengineering and Systems Biology
Computational Science and Engineering
Dynamic Systems, Control and Robotics
Micro and Nanoscale Engineering
Solid Mechanics, Materials and Structures
Thermal Sciences and Fluid Mechanics 

Students interested in pursuing undergraduate research projects should contact individual faculty members during office hours or by appointment. For more information about how to gain research experience as an undergraduate, visit the UCSB Undergraduate Research Office website.
