[Dr. Jennifer Piatek presenting her research on Mars at a recent conference]
Did you know that students at CCSU can do real science research projects with faculty mentors? These projects can lead to presentations at professional conferences and/or publications in professional journals, making YOUR resume shine! For example, students working with Dr. Jennifer Piatek can study the surface of Mars and students working with Dr. Kristine Larsen can focus on variable stars, stars that change brightness over time. Visit the Geological Sciences Department on the 5th floor of Nicolaus Copernicus Hall and be sure to look over all the research posters hanging in the hallways. See yourself at CCSU doing real scientific research!
