NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) has opened applications for its Visiting Undergraduate Research Program, available to undergraduate students from universities across the UAE. Taught by leading NYUAD faculty, the program will create a platform for visiting students to contribute to unique and innovative research projects in NYUAD’s state-of-the-art facilities.

The Visiting Undergraduate Research Program provides an opportunity for a limited number of UAE-based undergraduate students to take part in research projects at NYUAD over the summer from June 10 to July 25, 2019. Applications close on March 31; for more information on the eligibility criteria and how to apply, please visit this link.

This program will allow full-time undergraduate students of good academic and disciplinary standing to enroll in a number of engineering and scientific placements.

Students who enroll should expect to gain on-hands experience in their field of interest as well as access to state-of-the-art laboratory facilities under the guidance of NYUAD faculty supervisors. The program is also aimed at equipping students to experience the breadth and depth of research within their chosen field.
