Undergraduate research (Crucible theme)
Cambridge undergraduates study one subject, and do that very thoroughly. In a university with no "minor" options, how do students build interdisciplinary skills?
One way is to spend the summer pursuing undergraduate research opportunities in other departments, via the Cambridge Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP). Crucible members have led a wide range of projects in which teams of undergraduates gained experience of design research, creating advanced technologies informed by human and social perspectives.
Major undergraduate research project teams:
Other design research opportunities for Cambridge students include:
- Computer science tripos group design projects
- Manufacturing engineering tripos design studio
- Masters in Interdisciplinary Design for the Built Environment
- Cambridge Digital Studios
- Interdisciplinary Design Project in Engineering
- Certificate in Humanities Computing for Languages (CHUCOL)
The Cambridge Design Education Forum involves members from each of these departments.
