Even though most of IUPUI is quiet over the summer, some students have continued, or are beginning, their careers as researchers. On July 25, students from schools all across IUPUI gathered at the Center for Research and Learning’s Student Summer Poster Symposium to present the results and findings of their summer research projects. Topics covered a wide variety of subjects, ranging from the creation of new cures for heart diseases to collecting data from the dark web. Student research was mentored by faculty or staff.
Student Research And Engagement Day 2019 was an official IUPUI 50th Anniversary Celebration event celebrating excellence in student research and engagement at IUPUI. We invited the entire IU network to attend the IUPUI Student Research & Engagement Day showcasing the breadth and depth of student research and creative activity across all academic units.
Undergraduate student research forms the backbone for many IUPUI student experiences. Through engagement with their departments, students pursue their personal interests, expand their skill sets, and develop their presence within the research community. They create valuable relationships with their faculty and staff mentors, and network with individuals who represent students’ academic and career interests.
Not all student research is solitary, crunching mountains of data for hours on end. Research and creative activities can be engaging and sociable, and it can ignite passions for a career.
