Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Get Involved!

Duke undergraduates have numerous opportunities to gain hands-on project and research experience in Computer Science.  A wide range of research projects guided by Duke's world-class faculty engage undergraduates, who often become co-authors on papers in major academic conferences. Undergraduates can pursue independent study courses guided by faculty, participate in the summer research and/or the Identity in Computing Research programs, and graduate with a distinction in research.

To stay tapped in and receive info about the latest Computer Science opportunities and events, add yourself to our Duke mailing list compsci@duke.edu! Go to: https://lists.duke.edu/sympa and enter "compsci" in the search box to find the CS Undergraduate listserv.
