AT TRU, we are proud to offer robust options for undergraduate students to get involved in research. Whether you have zero experience, have conducted lots of research, or are just curious about where to get started, we welcome you to explore and find out more.

What is undergraduate research?

Undergraduate research allows you to gain hands on experience working with a faculty member or conducting your own research independently, no matter your field of study. Not sure where to start? Created by students for students, the Canadian Undergraduate Research Network (CURN) provides a roadmap to research, making it more accessible, approachable, and attainable. Find a path that’s right for you, today.

Why do undergraduate research?

Research can do more for you than simply answer a research question. Engaging in undergraduate research can transform your educational and professional journey in the following ways:

  • Develop critical thinking skills, creativity and dedication

  • Apply your studies outside of the classroom
  • Boost your resume with real world experience
