Research Week

Research Week is The University of Texas at Austin’s annual celebration of undergraduate research and creative activity. Research Week provides opportunities for undergraduates to explore UT’s vast and diverse community of research and creative work, and to find ways of getting involved. Read more about Research Week.

Research Week 2018 is scheduled for April 16-20, 2018.

Get Involved

Research Week provides excellent ways for students to learn about research opportunities and present their own research, and for departments, colleges, and programs to showcase their students’ achievements. Events range from undergraduate poster presentations, exhibitions, performances, and symposia to guest speakers and workshops aimed at helping undergraduates achieve their research goals. Don’t miss the multi-disciplinary Longhorn Research Poster Session, which will take place on Wednesday, April 18, 12-2 p.m. in the Union Ballroom.
