Yuan LIU
BSc in Chemistry

UROP provided me with an opportunity to participate in a real research project and delve into my major field of study. My understanding of chemistry is no longer restricted to textbook knowledge, but having been extended to more practical skills in experimental problem solving. Real life research also required me to cooperate with lab mates and communicate effectively with the project supervisor. This is the sort of experience rarely obtained in other courses.

I strongly recommend that students should participate in this beneficial program. For freshmen, it will be a treasured opportunity to broaden their minds, and senior students will discover research interests upon which to base further study.
