Is BYU known for its research efforts?

Hey everyone, I'm considering Brigham Young University as one of my top choices for college, but I'm not sure how strong their research reputation is. Can anyone comment on the research opportunities available at BYU? Thanks!

Hello! I can definitely share some insight into the research scene at BYU, as my child is currently attending the university. BYU indeed has a strong research reputation and offers many opportunities for undergraduates to get involved in research projects across various fields, such as engineering, life sciences, humanities, and more.

For instance, my child has participated in a research project in their major and genuinely enjoyed the experience. BYU also has the annual Student Research Conference (SRC), which provides a platform for students to present their research findings to the university community.

While BYU might not be as well-known as some larger research institutions, they certainly focus on providing meaningful research experiences for their students. It's essential to reach out to professors in your field of interest once enrolled to explore specific research opportunities. Good luck with your college search, and I hope this information helps!
