Science & Technology: Summer Research Session Program

The Summer Research Session (SRS) program supports student and faculty salaries during the summer to conduct scientific research. The program allows the faculty to focus on their scholarly research projects and gives the students the opportunity to learn by conducting faculty mentored scientific research. While many universities have similar programs restricted to upperclassmen, the SRS program is unique because we encourage underclassmen to participate.

The SRS Program was initiated by the funding of a $1,000,000 National Science Foundation grant in 2009 and was institutionalized by Armstrong in 2014 as CST’s signature research program. 

Why is undergraduate research important at Armstrong?  Students that participated in research had a 26% increase in their 4 year graduation rate, 49% increase in their 5 year graduation rate, and a 57% increase in their 6 year graduation rate when compared to other CST majors!
