Undergraduate Projects & Research

As an undergraduate student, you can work side-by-side in the lab with some of the best faculty in engineering, medicine, and the sciences to solve problems, take entire courses focused on design, or create your own prototypes in our maker spaces and machine shop. You also can work with students from across WashU, including the medical school, through IDEA Labs, a student-run bioengineering design incubator that solves health care problems.
