Use the summer to take your research experience to the next level! 

Participating in research during the summer allows students to focus on their projects in a more intensive way that may not be possible during the academic year. UT Austin students are able to do research in labs on campus as well as through programs hosted by outside institutions. 


If you have questions or would like to speak with someone about your particular interests and plans, make a consultation appointment with a student ambassador or with Lynda Gonzales, Director of Student Engagement and Outreach, at https://calendly.com/lyndag-1/30-min-experiential-learning-consultation.
