How SRI Works

SRI is a research-intensive, structured and mentored experience. It consists of a two-course program over 10 weeks in the summer, corresponding to summer sessions one and two and eight credits. It is a full time commitment over the 10 week program. 

Research Stream Part 1 (summer session one: May 26 - June 26) covers theory, techniques, protocols and data management of the research. Research Stream Part 2 (summer session 3: June 29 - July 31) consists of applying that to the research problem, as student teams plan their experiments, conduct their experiments, analyze the results, and present their results. Students finish the program by presenting their research results in a public poster session.

Course credit:

These courses will count toward a Binghamton University degree. The courses also fulfill the Composition and Laboratory general education requirements and count toward the major that corresponds to the rubric code of the courses.

You will be billed for these 8 credits. In addition to tuition, there are comprehensive, laboratory and activity fees as shown in the table below.
