What is an independent project?

Academic year projects emphasizing student independence and close mentoring relationships with faculty:

  • traditional research topics
  • design projects
  • consulting opportunities
  • development of challenging new course modules

(Some other common questions about projects are addressed in the FAQ.)

How do I find a project?

You find a project by talking with faculty members, and getting them to agree to be your faculty sponsor. You can either just pick some faculty members and discuss what projects they might have, or you can review posted projects first and use them to help figure out which faculty members to approach. If you would like some help identifying a project/faculty sponsor we would be happy to assist!

Projects are sorted by department, but you don't need to pick a project from your own department. Click on the links (left) to see projects.
