I am in Year 3 of a five year undergraduate programme. My university is offering various summer projects which are experimental, theoretical or computational in nature. How does one get involved in such a project? I have been told to seek out projects from potential supervisors/academic faculty within my university, however I do not know what this means in practice. Is it advisable to email the majority (or all) of the faculty whose area I am interested in to ask about potential projects or only those academics who have lectured previous courses I have attended? Does this usually mean I should be trying to see if I can get involved in a project that is already been offered by the faculty or one that I thought about myself and then taken to various members of the faculty? Many thanks.
