Research Involvement Program
Columbia affiliates: Click here to log in and view and apply for additional postings
At The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia University, the faculty takes an active role in research, which is funded by both private and government sources. Faculty members view student involvement in research as a part of the educational process and actively encourage it.
These research opportunities are open to all students, including who are not affiliated with Columbia. Many of these postings may provide financial support through an NSF REU site program.
Columbia Students, please note: Additional postings are available to you. Please login using your Columbia UNI to view additional postings.
