WHY DO RESEARCH?

MAKE AN IMPACT ON THE WORLD

Every day, we read about research that changes our lives - from studies on vaccines, to new computational algorithms, to studies of new ways to do business. Each of these breakthroughs come from researchers working to advance their field.

GAIN EXPERTISE IN A TOPIC

The goal of research is to extend human knowledge in an area. So, when you do research, you become an expert by both learning the advances that came before you and contributing to our current knowledge.

STAND OUT FOR ADMISSIONS

Creating a research project is an effective way for you to showcase your strengths and demonstrate your abilities. Doing research can help at each stage of life – whether applying to college, grad school, or your next job.

ARE YOU UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?
