Undergraduate research with FURI

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

The Fulton Undergraduate Research Initiative (FURI) is designed to enhance your engineering and technical 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.

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

Who’s Eligible?

Fulton undergraduate students are eligible for two semesters of funding. Faculty mentors must be faculty in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. More eligibility information can be found here.
