Eureka is a searchable database supporting undergraduate participation in research and creative activity across The University of Texas at Austin. Students can find faculty members who regularly work on a given topic using the "Faculty" search, or browse a listing of posted research assistantships with the "Projects" search. Before reaching out about your research interests, the Office of Undergraduate Research recommends students attend an info session or advising for tips on contacting faculty members.
Keep in mind that the project listing is not exhaustive. Even if you don't find a project on your topic of choice, you'll likely find faculty working on a similar topic using the "Faculty" search.
UT Austin is one of the top public research universities in the United States, and our researchers are leaders in a variety of fields. From nanotechnology to musical composition, child welfare to popular culture, faculty members and students conduct innovative research every day. Students from all disciplines are encouraged to use Eureka to identify research interests and connect with faculty researchers.
Eureka was originally created by Connexus: Connections in Undergraduate Studies, in collaboration with the College of Natural Sciences, the Cockrell School of Engineering, the College of Liberal Arts, the Office of the Vice President for Research, the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost, and the Center for Teaching and Learning. Since 2006, Eureka has been part of the portfolio of the School of Undergraduate Studies, which sponsored a rewrite of the site in 2017.
