Experiential Learning - Research Opportunities
Interested in Research?
In addition to the learning you do in your engineering classes, you have the opportunity to do research outside the classroom, assisting Calvin's engineering professors with their research projects.
Some students have ventured off campus to do research at other colleges and universities. The National Science Foundation sponsors an REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program that many different universities support.
Summer research fellowships
A number of summer research fellowships are awarded to engineering and other science division students each year. The fellowships are awarded to students after their first, second or third year at Calvin, with preference given to those interested in careers in science and/or science research. Calvin students have earned prestigious fellowships.
Research involves ten weeks of work with a professor during the summer. A stipend of $3,700 is awarded, with additional funds for project supplies.
