Integrating Research into the Undergraduate Engineering Experience We have successfully embedded undergraduate students in research projects; these projects often result in conference papers and other products with these students as lead and coauthors. Here we discuss our overall environment of embedding students early in their engineering curriculum through their senior design course. Our focus has been on exposing students to core research skills, openended problemsolving and design, and every possible venue for student practice of communication skills. The end result over seven years has been a strong string of senior design projects, research productivity, and employment and/or graduate school acceptance.
