What skills do Undergraduate Researchers would pickup at ACE-Lab?
- Qualitative Data Analysis (interviews, observational data, focus groups)
- Quantitative Data Analysis (statistical analysis, data analytics, programming)
- Attend Scientific Conferences (ACELab sends UGRs to prestigious conferences every year to present their research paper/posters)
- Lead a mini-experiment (UGRs will learn how to design and run lab studies involving human subjects)
- Build knowledge in multidisciplinary fields (our projects involve knowledge from and collaboration with various fields including computer science, engineering, psychology, management, and architecture)
- Publish Conference and Journal Papers (UGRs at ACELab will be involved in writing scientific papers and posters and learn academic and technical writing)
- Gain Research credits for your work (Students can receive 1-4 hour research credit as ISEN491, ISEN485, ENGR491 all of which would count as tech elective)
- Experience Graduate School (students will work directly with graduate students and experience graduate school first-hand. ACELab has several UGRs who transitioned to Masters and PhD students)
- Design and Develop Prototypes (ACELab’s applied research focus allows UGRs to design, develop, and test cutting-edge engineered products in natural settings)
- Participate in the Aggie Challenge (ACELab is home to several AggiE_Challenge projects where UGRs work in teams to tackle exciting research projects)
