What is VIP?

The Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) program provides undergraduate students the opportunity to participate in multiyear, multidisciplinary, team-based projects under the guidance of faculty and graduate students in their areas of expertise. Undergraduate students can earn technical elective or free elective course credits (depending on major) for working on specific research projects with other undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty, in their research labs. This is a valuable team-based learning experience on cutting-edge topics that will greatly enhance your resume when applying for jobs or graduate school.

This spring 2019 semester there are nineteen VIP teams that are looking for new students to join them. Interested students are strongly encouraged to contact the team advisers to find out how to apply for the team and register for the appropriate VIP class section. Space is limited and teams can fill up fast!
