Bass Connections brings together Duke faculty and students to explore real-world issues in interdisciplinary research teams.


Looking for a funded summer research experience? Some of the 2018-19 Bass Connections project teams begin with a summer component.

The 2018-19 Bass Connections project teams offer opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students from all levels and disciplines. For students in the humanities, we’ve compiled a list of some projects that may be of particular interest.

We present a sampling of 2018-19 Bass Connections projects that may be of interest to undergraduate and graduate engineering students. Review the list, and learn more at the Bass Connections Fair on January 24 and the E-Social on February 2.

All students are invited to learn more about the Bass Connections project teams for 2018-19. Team leaders, advisors and staff will be available to share information and answer questions. Stop by, enjoy a bite to eat and check out the new projects.

We'll have snacks, a short video presentation, a Q&A with former participants and a chance for students to speak to Summer 2018 project sponsors.
