Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Opportunities at UWM

The physics department offers numerous opportunities for undergraduates to participate in cutting-edge physics research. In recent years, students have undertaken projects in biophysics, computational physics, gravitational physics, surface science and condensed matter physics. Further details of current research activities in the physics department can be found under research on this site. Students should contact individual faculty to determine the exciting opportunities available at this time.

Office of Undergraduate Research

UWM’s Office of Undergraduate Research provides a unique opportunity for undergraduates to gain hands-on research experience. As early as freshman year, students can work side-by-side with physics faculty members and graduate students on current research projects. Such research experiences help students apply their course skills to tasks such as electronic instrumentation, data acquisition and analysis, software development, and equipment design.
