Undergraduate Research Opportunities in Agricultural and Biological Engineering
Undergraduate students who are interested in participating in research with an ABE faculty member should contact the faculty member directly. The ABE advising office does not connect students with faculty for research opportunities nor do they keep a list of research opportunities available for students.
Students working with ABE faculty
After a student has identified an ABE faculty member to work with and has been invited by that faculty member to work in their lab, a contract will need to be completed and signed by the faculty member and the student. Then the student will need to register for ABE research credits. Students will need to add research credits via Scheduling Assistant using the "+ Variable Title Course" button. If a student uses the "+ New Course" button, their override request will be denied. Please note that research credits can only be added during Open Registration; students should not include research credits when submitting their Course Request Form (CRF) during the batch registration process.
The Registrar has put together short videos for how students register for research credits and how students can confirm that their registration was processed correctly.
ABE students working with non-ABE faculty
After an ABE student has identified a faculty member to work with and been invited by that faculty member to work in their lab, the student will need to register for research credits. If the faculty member does not have an appointment with ABE, the student will need to register for research credits in the faculty member's home department. Students should contact an advisor in that department for more information on how to register for research credits in that department.
Research as Required Course or Elective (or Selective) Credits (ABE students only)
ABE students who wish to use research credits towards their required course or elective (or selective) totals need to meet with your advisor.
Non-ABE students should check with their academic advisor regarding what degree requirement, if any, research credits can be applied to.
