Summer Research


Research experiences during the academic year as well as the summer equip physics, engineering, and astronomy students to innovate, contribute, and continue to learn when they embark on professional careers.

Students in the Physics, Engineering, and Astronomy program at Beloit College are strongly encouraged to participate in research projects while at at Beloit College, whether in during the academic year, the summer, or both. 

With Beloit Faculty

Faculty-Sponsored Research can take place during the academic year or summer. This research allows students to apply knowledge from theoretical classes and laboratory experiences to real world problems that neither have known solutions, nor are necessarily solvable.

With faculty-sponsored research, students spend a considerable amount of time on their own investigating their research problem.  This helps prepare them to conduct and eventually supervise research post-Beloit.

With National Laboratories and Research Universities

Research at national laboratories and at and research universities is highly encouraged for students intended to pursue careers in physics, astronomy, and engineering. These research experiences provide students with invaluable opportunities to test and develop their research skills in specialized laboratories under the supervision of scientists or advanced graduate students.

Summer Science Research Opportunities

There are a limited number of mentored research opportunities for current Beloit College students.

Summer 2021 project descriptions are included below as examples. Descriptions of projects for Summer 2022 will be available in mid-February.
