As an undergraduate at one of the foremost institutions in the nation, there are many reasons to delve into research. Undergraduate research sparks critical thinking and creativity. It hones the ability to pose the right question, solve for the right answer, and distill the messy, complex, and abstract thoughts of a lab notebook into an elegant argument. Research is the innate pursuit of progress and service and the catalyst of innovation. We work to enhance it. Georgia Tech undergraduate students have many opportunities to participate in research with faculty across campus. The best way for you to begin your career in research is to review faculty web pages and see who is doing research that you find exciting. The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program strives to promote an entrepreneurial spirit by supporting students with big ideas with potential for commercialization. Here are some of the resources, organizations, and events involved in promoting invention and entrepreneurship at Georgia Tech.
