What Does Research Mean at Rochester?
Research is the systematic pursuit of knowledge and an exciting process of discovery. As a Rochester student, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in real research. Your research could be aesthetic, socio-political, scientific, or technical. You choose the tools, gather the data, and delve deeper to find answers.
No matter your passion, Rochester is a great fit if you’re interested in doing research. Not only is the University a major research institution with world-class scholars, scientists, libraries, and laboratories, but it also has a long-standing commitment to making these resources fully available to undergraduates. As a result, you’ll find our student researchers working in the lab and in the field, independently and with industry partners, in our local communities and all over the world.
