Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students are welcomed in the lab. To the right is a list of projects that could potentially be undertaken by an undergraduate provided that there is a graduate mentor available; the prospective undergraduate has reasonable background experience; and the graduate/undergraduate pairing is an appropriate fit. If you are interested in working with us, contact Jake George directly at jake.george@utah.edu, with a cc: to Greg.Clark@utah.edu. Items to include in your email:

  • Specific email subject line: "Prospective Undergraduate Student"
  • Brief cover letter detailing your past work related to one of the topics mentioned below OR a specific project you are interested in
  • Resume

Although a prospective undergraduate is not expected to have all of the background knowledge necessary for a given project, some related experience is recommended. Generally useful subjects include:

  • MATLAB
  • LabVIEW
  • Arduino
  • SolidWorks and 3D printing
  • Soldering and breadboard prototyping
