Undergraduate Research

The University of Delaware has been internationally recognized for its exceptional undergraduate research program. Here, you’ll get the hands-on experience and face-to-face faculty time that other institutions usually reserve for graduate students. We strongly encourage our undergraduate students to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to get a feel for mechanical engineering and its applications!
