Undergraduate research through FURI

The Fulton Undergraduate Research Initiative (FURI) is designed to enhance your engineering undergraduate curriculum by providing hands-on lab experience, independent and thesis-based research and the opportunity to travel to professional conferences.

Many FURI participants have gone on to apply their unique experience to work in industry, as well as graduate studies in engineering, medicine, law and other disciplines.

The FURI program has been made possible by the generous support of Mr. Ira A. Fulton and his family.

Students in FURI’s research program develop an idea under the mentorship of an engineering faculty member, then apply for funding. Once accepted, they perform research, attend workshops, prepare research summaries and participate in the research symposium.
