This is an intense, professor-guided, individualized course for D.Eng. students preparing for their Preliminary Examinations. The course instructor is the student’s primary advisor and sets therequirements. Successful students pass their Preliminary Examinations upon completing this course. Students may enroll in this course for multiple semesters if necessary.
The purpose of this course is to synthesize a coherent research proposal for the Doctor of Engineering major project. The course instructor is the student’s primary advisor, working withthe student to create the research proposal to be defended in a public presentation and private examination. Students may enroll in this course for multiple semesters if necessary.
Students enroll in this course upon completion of their Research Proposal Examinations while they are conducting advanced engineering research under the supervision of their advisors. Thenumber of credits awarded will vary based on the amount of time students devote to their research; this is exactly analogous to how we assign credit hours for dissertation research forPh.D. students. Course is for Doctor of Engineering students only. Course is repeatable for credit.
