Research Opportunities for Georgia Tech & AUC Students

The center involves undergraduate students in research projects during any semester either for course credit or pay. Interested students are teamed with MRSEC faculty based on program need and student’s interest. Participating students learn about interdisciplinary research while contributing to the goals of their particular project. The research experience also provides a valuable introduction to graduate level research and increases the chances of the participant to be accepted to a graduate program.
