Great companies through the Northwest, and beyond, such as Boeing, Microsoft, and the Idaho Department of Water Resources, are constantly on the hunt for talented scientists from the University of Idaho. Why? It’s because of the high-caliber of individuals we attract, and because of our team’s commitment to offering hands-on learning opportunities. A hands-on approach to learning means that you learn by doing. Whether you’re in the lab with Steve Krone, a professor in our mathematics department who studies stochastic processes and mathematical biology, or you’re working with Christine Berven, a physics professor with research interests in condensed matter and device physics, you know you’re gaining real-life experiences that will pay dividends wherever your career takes you.
How do you benefit from our hands-on approach?
- Our faculty are nationally recognized for their research, but they’re also extremely approachable and accessible.
- Increase your confidence in the laboratory
- Hone your problem-solving and analytical skills.
- Publish your results in the scientific literature.
- Present your results at regional and national meetings.
- Prepare for your chosen career, or graduate/professional school
- Research is FUN!!!
