In this paper we share our approach into the design of undergraduate research course at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM). The course design process, description and instruction delivery are discussed. The lessons learnt will be highlighted along with experiences and challenges from a first offering of the course during winter term of 2011. As a first assessment, major benefits of the course include for both students and faculty through providing increased interaction, increasing student intellectual maturity, and furthering faculty research projects.
