The Undergraduate Research Programme (UGRP) encourages undergraduate students to experience the joy of research and what it means to be a researcher. Through the Undergraduate Research Programme (UGRP) the University provides opportunities to students to deeply explore issues or ideas by either working on it independently under the supervision of a faculty or with a faculty member in their laboratory or on their research projects. This programme is a good preparation for graduate school and provides an exposure to a research-oriented career. It also provides an opportunity to work closely with a professor. Students can directly approach a faculty and express their desire to work with them on a research projects or may respond to a request from faculty who may be looking for a UGRP students for their projects.
Selected students are designated as UGRP Scholars. URB organises an annual symposium where UGRP scholars get to present their research to the entire University community. All UGRP Scholars who maintain defined scholastic levels and complete the proposed research project are awarded certificates during the symposium. The symposium also invites well known researchers to speak to the scholars on aspects of research and research as a career.
