Dedicated to the Research-Practicioner Experience
Students are expected to develop research skills through a first year research project, class research projects, thesis research, dissertation research, and additional research projects. Conference participation and publications are highly encouraged.
Students are also expected to apply research skills by working in industry, government, or other institutional settings either prior to or during their stay in the department. This may involve part-time placement during the academic year or summer, or be satisfied by previous work experience.
