Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate Research is an exciting way to round out your education at Washington University in St. Louis and apply principles that you have been studying in a novel and practical way.

New projects are also available for students interested in undergraduate research. Also, browse through the finished projects to see what your classmates have done. Do not hesitate to contact the professor if you are interested in continuing their work or have ideas of your own related to these projects. All test equipment in the teaching laboratories, and in some cases specialized research facilities being used by supervising faculty, can be made available to you.

Students interested in pursuing Undergraduate Research with Professor Nehorai's Robotic Sensing and related projects should consider taking ESE297 - Introduction to Undergraduate Research. This is a course designed to give students some critical signal processing background and hands on design experience to prepare them for Undergraduate Research. Also, please see the BSEE Degree Requirements and BS in Systems Science & Engineering  for details of how to use ESE497 for EE/SSE elective credits and free electives.
