Undergraduate Research Opportunities at UCI

Your undergraduate research work at UCI could change the world.

Get hands-on experience as an undergraduate.

UCI provides all students with research opportunities from the get-go.

You won’t get these kinds of opportunities at larger campuses.

As an integral component of your education, UCI’s Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) encourages and facilitates research and creative activities for undergraduates from all of our schools and academic disciplines.

Research opportunities are available on campus with every discipline, interdisciplinary program, and school, and with many off-campus laboratories, industrial partners, and other universities. Discover the unique and valuable benefits of undergraduate research through UROP!
