Undergraduate Research Programme
An Undergraduate Research Programme (UGRP) is to encourage 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 several 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 lab work or on their research projects. This programme tenders valuable preparation for graduate school and imparts exposure to a research-oriented career. It also provides an opportunity to work closely with a professor.
WHAT IS UGRP?
Undergraduate Research Programme (UGRP) as a part of the University Research Board (URB) will provide an opportunity to undergraduates from all disciplines to gain a lifetime experience through mentored research, scholarship, or creative engagements in which students and faculty mentors collaborate in the design and implementation of projects and the dissemination of results.
