Undergraduate research

The Department of Computer Science is passionate about involving students at every level in its research. We are proud to say that we have many undergraduates who do research with our faculty members.

If you are new to the idea of doing research, but not sure how to get started, Associate Teaching Professor Mark Sheldon has advice to share. Professor Sheldon’s recommendations include the Summer Scholars Program at Tufts and, outside of Tufts, Research Experiences for Undergrads (REUs). Be sure to read his recommendations in full to experience the best start to your research experience. You could also look into the Tufts Laidlaw Scholars or DIAMONDS programs.
