Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program

The University of Minnesota's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) offers financial awards twice yearly to full-time undergraduates for research, scholarly, or creative projects undertaken in partnership with a faculty member. At the same time, faculty have the opportunity to work closely with students and receive valuable assistance with their own research or professional activity. UROP adds a new dimension to the undergraduate experience. It also encourages students to conduct research and pursue academic interests outside of their regular courses by employing them to work on special projects. Projects are expected to contribute to the student's academic development.

UMD Colleges represented: College of Education and Human Service Professions, College of Liberal Arts, Labovitz School of Business and Economics, School of Fine Arts, and Swenson College of Science and Engineering

CO2 Capture with Potassium Carbonate and Alcohol

Akeeb, Olajumobi; Junes, Connor; Luedtke, Zachary (2020)
Traditional CO2 capture technologies using amine-based sorbents are very energy intensive and result in secondary environmental pollution originating from amine degradation. In this work, a low temperature, energy saving ...

Quantifying physical characteristics of granular cherty material to determine transport history and depositional setting of iron formation from the ~1.9 Ga Mesabi Iron Range, MN

Johnson, Kendall A (2018)
Iron formations along the Mesabi Range (Figure 1) in Minnesota are studied for various economic reasons, but for the purpose of this project, we focus on the physical properties of the individual grains in order to ...

Comparative mineralogy of the ~2.7 Ga Soudan Iron Formation, Minnesota and the Deloro Iron Formation, Timmins, ON, and the Temagami Iron Formation, Temagami, ON.

Stolze, Danielle M (2020-05-27)
The purpose of this project was to compare the mineralogy of similarly aged rocks from the Soudan Iron Formation in Minnesota and the Temagami and Deloro Iron Formations in Ontario, Canada. We found that the iron-bearing ...

Reversing the Escape Algorithm for the Plane

Shoemaker, Blake J; Peckham, Bruce B (2020-05-24)
The objective of this research is to develop a method of finding a function which produces a given escape diagram. An escape diagram is a graphical representation of the set of inputs in the domain of a function which remain ...

Modeling the Distribution of the Patients’ Stay at PACU

Yang, Jingyi (2020)
In a recent study to improve the patient flows at a local hospital, data of the patients’ length of stay at PACU need to be analyzed to fit into different theoretical distributions to be used in mathematical and simulation ...
