Why do undergraduate research?

Discover first-hand how research contributes to the advancement of human knowledge. Experience a change of pace from formal classroom activities and gain skills applicable to both research and non-research careers. Studies show that students who engage in research are twice as likely to graduate, five-times more likely to go on to graduate school, and have more successful careers after graduation.

An analysis by Purdue’s Office of the Provost concluded that about 30 percent of Purdue undergraduates have at least one research experience during their time at Purdue.
