Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Research Publications is an informal technical report collection of undergraduate student research by Rose-Hulman students. Student research projects may have one or more students and one or more research mentors, typically Rose-Hulman fauclty, who are acknowledged in the posting. The research project is typically an intensive summer research project, senior thesis/project, or other substantial academic year project. Some noteworthy research programs represented in the collection are:
- Joseph B. and Reba A. Weaver Undergraduate Research Awards, and the
- Rose Summer Undergraduate Research Program
Both programs provide summer support for the student to work with a mentor on a research project of mutual interest.
This series is not peer reviewed. The authors (with guidance from mentors) are responsible for the correctness of results and exposition of the papers.
In some cases the final report has been replaced by a link to a subsequent formal publication joint with the faculty mentor and other faculty.
