EUREKA is a searchable database designed to support undergraduate participation in research and creative activity across The University of Texas at Austin. It includes profiles for UT Austin faculty members with information about their research interests, as well as a listing of posted openings for undergraduates on research projects. EUREKA's purpose is to help students identify research interests and connect with faculty researchers.
UT Austin is one of the top public research universities in the United States, and our researchers are leaders in a variety of fields. Whether they study nanotechnology or musical composition, child welfare or popular culture, faculty members and students pursue, produce, present and publish innovative research every day. EUREKA supports UT Austin students in becoming active participants in the research that happens on campus by showing students the variety of research interests of our faculty and connecting them with opportunities to get involved. The Office of Undergraduate Research offers additional information about undergraduate research at UT Austin at weekly information sessions that are open to any undergraduate.
EUREKA was created by Connexus: Connections in Undergraduate Studies, in collaboration with the College of Natural Sciences, the Cockrell School of Engineering, the College of Liberal Arts, the Office of the Vice President for Research, the Office of the Vice President and Provost, and the Center for Teaching and Learning. Since 2006, EUREKA has been part of the portfolio of the School of Undergraduate Studies.
