Getting Started in Research

New to Research?

Research occurs across campus and all majors can participate. Apply the knowledge you gain in the classroom and engage in learning experiences that broaden your perspectives and insights while helping to create new knowledge. You will have the opportunity to work on a team, improve your oral and written communication skills, and have a chance to discover what really interests you.  

Additionally, undergraduate research experiences will help you whether you want to get a job or go to graduate school after graduation. You will develop marketable skills such as time management, critical thinking, problem solving, and leadership. And you will meet faculty researchers and career professionals who can help open doors to future opportunities!

About Us

The Office of Undergraduate Research at Cal Poly Pomona (OUR-CPP) was established in the fall of 2013 to increase undergraduate student participation in research programs. Participation in research as an undergraduate has been proven to not only expand a student's academic experience at CPP but also improve retention and graduation rates.
