UC Davis Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) Program

The Vertically Integrated Projects program integrates undergraduate education and faculty research in a team-based environment. It provides an immersive, collaborative, and flexible learning environment in which undergraduate students earn academic credits by participating in a research project for up to three years, from sophomore through senior years. The students have the opportunity to learn and practice professional skills, experience different roles, and make substantial contributions to research projects. VIP offers a unique opportunity to apply principles and skills learned in courses to research problems in a creative environment over a long time. It will develop and strengthen technical, critical thinking, problem-solving, collaborative, mentoring, and communication skills. It will considerably enhance a graduating student’s professional readiness. Undergraduate students can earn 3-5 VIP credits/quarter and the courses will be letter graded.
