Student Research

Many schools refer to themselves as research institutions. Oftentimes though, that research is limited to faculty and graduate-level students. At UM-Flint however, undergraduates are also afforded the opportunity to get involved in cutting-edge research projects.

Collaborative Potential at UM-Flint

Expanding research partnerships at the University of Michigan – Flint is important to its higher education mission. More collaborative research and corporate engagement is necessary to keep pace with advances in scientific and creative knowledge. 

UM-Flint seeks collaboration with nearby universities and corporate partners, to better invest in student training, career development and areas of faculty curricular and research expertise. Opportunities are strongest currently in Environmental and Physical Sciences (Urban Ecology, Cell Biology and Toxicology, Green Chemistry, Nutritional Sciences), Information and Computer Science (Software Development, Smart Grid, Data Mining, Health Informatics, Mobile Commerce and Analytics), Health Assessment, Patient Care and Clinical Validation Research (including Biomedical Engineering and Device Development).
