At UVA Engineering, we are dedicated to educating the next generation of engineering leaders. That means we make it a priority to equip our students with both technical knowledge and hands-on research experiences.
Students at UVA conduct research in high-performing labs alongside top-notch graduate students, under the mentorship of faculty members who are leaders in their fields. By the time they graduate from UVA Engineering, 100 percent of our undergraduate students will have completed at least one major research project that demonstrates analysis and judgment.
Their experience will prepare them for global engineering leadership, because UVA is at the leading edge of cross-disciplinary work that creates knowledge and technologies to address some of society's biggest challenges. Students have opportunities to research engineering problems that have a range of implications, from business to medicine to law to public policy.
