Faculty members generally advertise research opportunities at course fairs. If you are interested in doing research in a particular area, you should approach a faculty member in that area to see if he or she has any research openings in his or her research program. In addition to research projects that are regularly offered by faculty, students have the opportunity to design their own research projects, under the guidance of a faculty member. Students who have their own ideas for research projects should contact a faculty member with appropriate expertise to discuss their ideas.
