The School of Computing offers the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Programme (UROP) in Computing to provide opportunities for research in computing by talented undergraduate students.

The aim of this programme is to foster intellectual exchange and collaboration between undergraduates and academic staff members. It allows undergraduates to participate in active research at the School of Computing, and to experience first-hand the challenges and exhilaration of research, discovery and invention. Students will be working at the frontiers of computing research and this exposure will complement their coursework.

Students will conduct research under the supervision of faculty members of the School of Computing. Typically, the research involves the following activities: problem formulation, literature survey, attending research seminars, proposal and implementation of solution, evaluation, and documentation and presentation of results. The relative importance of each of the above research activities can vary widely, depending on the chosen research topic (ranging from basic research to applied research to innovative application development).

A student participating in UROP (Computing) will take CP3209 Undergraduate Research Project in Computing which a year-long module. 

Administration
