Never participated in MIT's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)? Want to get involved, but don't know where to start? Come to the 2011 IAP UROP Expo and meet faculty, staff and students representing UROP departments, labs and centers across campus. The expo provides an excellent opportunity to find out about UROP in the areas that interest you most, including biology, materials science and engineering, mathematics, aeronautics and astronautics, urban studies and planning, chemistry and political science.
Knowledgeable representatives from participating departments will be on hand to answer your UROP-related questions, such as:
- When is the best time to start looking for a UROP?
- What is the best way to approach faculty within the department?
- What kind of experience might I need?
- I'm interested in a specific type of research. Who in the department should I contact?
