Pioneering Undergraduate Research Programs

The University of Delaware is one of the top universities in the nation for undergraduate research. UD has had an organized program for over 20 years that has become a model for other schools. UD's pioneering efforts in undergraduate education have been recognized both nationally and on the campus for achieving the highest standard of accomplishment in undergraduate research and discovery learning. We have been recognized for this achievement as a national standard to be emulated by research universities throughout America. UD has served as the model for undergraduate research programs at 50 other colleges and universities.

Our undergraduate research programs have received accolades from numerous foundations and government organizations including:

  • The Carnegie Foundation’s Boyer Commission on undergraduate education at research universities recognized the University of Delaware as one of five national leaders in providing active learning experiences unavailable to undergraduates at most research universities.
  • The National Science Foundation has recognized UD as one of 10 institutions nationwide to exhibit 'bold leadership' and 'meaningful results' in the integration of research and education.

Research apprenticeships with faculty mentors give talented, motivated University of Delaware undergraduates a chance to see and take part in what is happening on the front lines of discovery at UD today. Explore the many challenging options you have for bringing learning to life.

ELEG 450 Senior Design

The University of Delaware believes that exceptionally capable and well-motivated students should be given a chance, while they are still beginners, to see and have a part in what is happening at the frontiers of knowledge today. Toward that end, undergraduates work as assistants or junior members of their faculty research teams. Preparing to do their own research, they have the opportunity to share in a professional researcher's work.
