|(3 cr.) The student pursues advanced study of a topic in
mechanical engineering on an individual or
small-group basis, independent of a formal
classroom setting. Similar to graduate level
research, the scope of the selected project is
tailored to the interests of the student, based on
resources and in consultation with a faculty
adviser. To develop research skills, the student
is integral in all phases of project completion by
defining objectives, studying fundamentals and
background material, outlining the approach,
conducting analysis and communicating results.
Requires permission of the instructor.
