Independent Research

Independent Research offers students a deep dive into a technical topic with the mentorship of a Faculty member. Students work throughout the semester and develop a written report and poster presentation that is presented in a Yard-wide ceremony.

EA495 is offered in Fall and EA496 is offered in the Spring. Students may take the course multiple times, but it satisfies the Elective credits only once. 

Application Timeline

  • Students find a Faculty advisor and develop a proposal early in the semseter prior to taking the course. Details on the proposal are given in the Ind. Research Instruction linked below.
  • Students submit the proposal to the Independent Research coordinator. The proposals are evaluated for technical merit by the coordinator and the department chair. If approved, the student may register for EA495/EA496.
