The primary goal is to prepare students to focus on an applied research problem and publish or present their results. The seminar will include a workshop component in which the student begins to plan for their own project proposal by developing a preliminary document, to be presented to the instructor and peers for immediate feedback. Following the seminar, students will work to develop a formal proposal for their independent industry or applied research project, to be reviewed by the project evaluation panel formed by the supervisor.
