The Research Project

Under the supervision of an EECS Faculty Research Advisor, students choose a specific topic or project on which to conduct research. Students are expected to commit a significant amount of time and energy to the research, integrating and fusing what has been learned in the classroom, to reach a deep level of involvement in and understanding of the project. Carefully planning required courses to span three semesters (final undergrad semester and two graduate semesters) should allow the necessary time for research. Possible Master's projects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Traditional independent research project.
  • In-depth follow-up to EECS199 project.
  • Extension of class project.
  • Product development with business plan.
  • Interdisciplinary project in outside area such as Health Care, MOT, Technology for 3rd World, etc.
  • Industry collaborative project.
