For students interested in undergraduate research, the College of Science provides numerous opportunities to participate in.
Here's an excerpt from the article "How undergraduate research drives student success at OSU" by Srila Nayak and Emmet Pettit for the College of Science:
"In the College of Science, students have more opportunities to collaborate on undergraduate research that addresses real-world problems and prepares them for top graduate programs and training at internationally recognized institutions.
Half of undergraduate students in the College of Science not only work on research projects with faculty mentors across the campus, but also find a home at Oregon State University’s cutting-edge scientific centers and institutes.
Oregon State funds more high-impact undergraduate research experiences than any other university in the state. Undergraduate research programs give students hands-on learning experiences early in their undergraduate careers, opportunities to learn new things and develop new skill sets beyond the scope of the classroom."
