6 research projects CWRU engineering students are working on right now

One thing you’ll find out quickly at Case Western Reserve University is that there are opportunities for research all around you. And as a future engineer, getting involved in research is not only easy, it’s personally and professionally satisfying (and it can start as early as day one!).

80% of CWRU engineering students do research as undergraduate students. Take a look at a few of the projects they’re working on:

  • Evaluation and redesign of an amphibious crab robot
  • Analyzing burnout conditions for a simple solid propellant rocket motor
  • CO2 sequestration via supersonic expansion
  • Post-stroke gait assistive device
  • AI food organizer and recipe finder
  • Dashboard-mounted siren detection assistive device for drivers with hearing impairments

Already have a research project in mind? We’re here to get it started. Or keep your options open. There are faculty all over our campus who await your input, and new friends who will soon become your collaborators. We even have an office dedicated to undergraduate research where you can receive advice and guidance to get started. 

Opportunity awaits.​
