The College of Engineering and Technology encourages academic excellence by supporting publications, workshops, labs and more. We aim to provide opportunities for students to explore ideas, analyze information and enrich their overall learning experiences.
The Research and Design Program (RDP) at GCU represents an exciting opportunity for you to engage in faculty research, design and development projects. By enrolling in this program, you can pursue experiences to help you find your purpose, explore your interests and unlock potential opportunities for graduate and medical school programs, internships and careers.
When you participate in the RDPs, you may have the opportunity to work alongside faculty in a wide variety of ways, such as earning authorship on presentations and publications and attending professional conferences. You can use RDP opportunities, such as the ones listed below, to enhance your academic experience in the College of Engineering and Technology’s research program.
The engineering shops are available to everyone and even non-engineering students are welcome. I could go in and get hands-on experience on my own. I talked to one of the professors on my Discover trip and definitely got a strong feeling that GCU wanted to foster my progress and see me succeed.
University Groups, Labs and Workshops for Student Research Initiatives
The college offers a variety of skill-building workshops and opportunities for you to explore. Each workshop examines different avenues of creating, building and innovating, with hopes of empowering you to unleash your limitless potential and shape a brighter future for generations to come.
I thought they [GCU workshops] would only be for people who are taking specific classes. At GCU I could use the equipment whenever I wanted to and work on my own projects! I’ve never had an opportunity like that before.
