Research and Testing

Kansas State University has a goal of advancing to be a Top 50 Public Research Institution by 2025.

Undergraduate research opportunities include working with world-class faculty and graduate students in top-notch laboratories on cutting edge research challenges. College of Engineering representatives are working with the university-level Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Inquiry to advance experiences for our undergraduate students.

Graduate research offers leadership and professional development opportunities to students. In addition, graduate students have the opportunity to travel to present their work at national and international conferences and workshops. Assistantships and scholarships are available for graduate students.View the graduate program brochures to learn more about the graduate programs offered.
