What should I study or work on over the summer to prepare for my first semester at Luddy?

We have many students who come to Luddy with little to no technology experience, and that’s just fine! Our faculty will introduce you all you need to know, even if you’re starting at the beginning. While nothing is expected or required, if you’d like to dive in, we recommend one of the many websites that introduce programming skills, such as codeacademy.com or code.org.

Research experience for undergraduates

Luddy undergraduate students have the unique opportunity to work with faculty in research centers and labs. Students gain experience and build analytical and professional skills that help prepare them for their careers or graduate studies.
