STEM Research Opportunities

Why Research

Research and research projects help students further their practical scientific skills. Additionally, research adds an excellent piece to your transfer application, personal portfolio, and scientific knowledge base. Every year OCC offers a research symposium for students interested in carrying out a research project and all students are encouraged to submit a proposal. For more information visit the Giles T Brown Symposium's website

Coming soon: Spring Research Symposium
