The Honors Program
The honors program is an opportunity for upper-class midshipmen to carry out a major research project under the direct supervision of a faculty member. As an honors candidate, a midshipman is responsible to his/her faculty advisor, who guides the design, research, and analysis of the subject of interest. The student's major code switches from 'ENM' to 'ENMH' or 'EOE' to 'EOEH,' and the student's diploma indicates a Bachelor of Science "with Honors."

Early Spring Semester, 2/C Year: Students meeting the criteria for the honors program will be invited to apply by their respective program director.
Prior to Registration Spring Semester, 2/C Year: Students wishing to apply for ENMH/EOEH will submit an EN495/EN496 Research Project Proposal Form to their respective research/faculty advisor.
A midshipman's academic advisor or program director are the primary points-of-contact to discuss pursuing the honors track. The MIDS program offers matrices of required courses for the honors majors (ENMH and EOEH). The NAOE Research website highlights previous and ongoing research.

For formal program documentation, including research proposal forms, cover pages, fabrication requests, etc., students are encouraged to review/use the documentation available on the EN495/EN496 webpage.
