    hi
    I hope you are reading this and will be helpful for me and other students here.
    I want to write a research paper and publish it to make my resume look better. Can you please tell me any topics or a little guidance would be very helpful.
    I am a hardworking person and I will make sure that my I complete the paper within 3 months.
    Please guide me as my university faculty is not very professional and they haven't helped me in topic selection.

    Are you a member of IET or IEEE?
    You could try looking for topics of research in journals?

    If you don't even know what relevant journals to look in to identify potential research topics, you won't have something of publishable quality ready in 3 months, regardless of how hard working you are.

    I'm an undergraduate EEE student too
    Here's a few links of some Electrical Engineering journals to get you started, have a look at some articles and choose a topic you find interesting. Hope that helped

    Discouraging anyone is not a good thing my friend. I have an idea and interest in learning about peizo electric materials. (sorry for spelling)

    By all means do it. I'm not so much discouraging as trying to be realistic. Few undergraduates are fully conversant with their subject and know how to write something of publishable quality. You've said elsewhere you've got low marks. I would assume improving them would take priority.

    Not at the moment no, just focusing on the course

    It is extremely unusual for undergraduates to publish a research paper. You need to do lots of actual research first. To begin with I would say you need to read at least 50 papers around the topic you want to publish in to get a feel for the current state-of-the-art and how the field has changed over time, as well as what potential opportunities may exist for your research paper.

    Then you need to carry out new experiments or derive new theory, and you need to be 100% certain of your results. It needs to advance what is already out there and be of use and interest to other researchers.

    After this you can try to write and publish a paper, but in due respect few undergraduates have professional level writing skills. These are skills developed during your undergraduate years and not something you typically have when beginning a degree. My personal opinion is that you shouldn't try to pursue this path. It would be better to focus on your degree instead and get great marks and perhaps engage in the research community in other ways, such as by hosting events or helping out lower years.

    You're likely to have more luck with one of these rather than a standard academic journal.

    With a 2.1 or above you shouldn't have too much trouble getting on a Master's degree.
