Research Projects

Undergraduate Research is an great opportunity to get more involved in the Math Department while working directly with faculty to expand the bounds of existing knowledge. There are many benefits to conducting undergraduate research, including the opportunity to:

  • Explore an area of interest more deeply
  • Learn first-hand about research to determine if you would like to pursue advanced study after your bachelor's degree
  • Gain experience that is often highly valued by graduate school admissions committees
  • Present your findings at the UC Davis Undergraduate Research Conference or other symposia, and possibly co-author a published paper
  • Build relationships with faculty, which can lead to personalized letters of recommendation
