Undergraduate Research Expo

LAUNCH Undergraduate Research Expo - Resource, Network, and Discover

October 5-6, 2021


*TAMU NetID required for some events.


**LAUNCH Undergraduate Research is closely monitoring the impact COVID is having on our campus community. As a result, the events scheduled for the Expo might change in response to keeping our community safe. Please continue to check this website for changes to the event schedule.**


The Undergraduate Research Expo highlights and celebrates undergraduate research experiences at Texas A&M University.

UNDERGRADS: Come for workshops, see how to get involved, and network with faculty and graduate students.

FACULTY, GRADS, & ADMIN: Find innovative ways to recruit students and incorporate high-impact practices in your research models.

The 2021 LAUNCH Undergraduate Research Expo will have virtual events and an in-person resource fair to bring you undergraduate research opportunities in a variety of formats!
In our fifth year, we are expanding the Undergraduate Research Expo to two days. October 5 will feature virtual events and an in-person resource fair. October 6 will have virtual events that combine synchronous, asynchronous, and static content for undergraduates, graduates, faculty, and staff to learn about meaningful opportunities to engage in undergraduate research. 
We hope the campus will join us as we work to connect undergraduates to many university settings through research communities and experiences that are unique to the research enterprise at an R1 institution.
