The Research Experience (REX) Program helps students pursue their academic interests by giving them an opportunity to work on a research project with an academic leader at U of T. Projects are available in many areas of engineering and science from biomedical technology to human factors. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about how research work is first hand and figure out if it's something you would like to further pursue. Students are encouraged to explore the development and networking opportunities with the program's receptions and research fair for an in-depth learning experience. Some projects have reserved positions exclusively for 1st and 2nd year students so check out the links below!
