Research Opportunities

Co-Op Requirement

An 8-week full-time internship or research experience is a requirement for a Sweet Briar Engineering degree. The research can be conducted at Sweet Briar or another institution.


Many colleges, universities and national labs offer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs). Listings for these are available through Career Services. Students are strongly encouraged to seek out their own opportunities as well.


Sweet Briar’s Honors Summer Research Program (HSRP) allows students to conduct research with a faculty member over the summer.
