Undergraduate Researcher (UR) for a Day provides a detailed overview of what a typical, discipline-specific day as a researcher entails. This overview is given in the form of a small-group discussion with a UT faculty researcher or his/her assistant researchers.
— What is (insert interest) research and what are the benefits of pursuing it?
— What are the commitments of research and where can I find research opportunities?
If these are questions that you’d like the answers to, or if you have more detailed questions, look forward to the UT researchers and/or their representatives answering them!
