CENV 4400 - Applied Research Project

Chemical & Environmental Tech Part-time Studies Course

School of Energy

Course Details

The course is an applied research project course where students, in consultation with the faculty advisor and industry sponsor when applicable, design, manage and execute an industrially significant research project involving both a research and laboratory component. The student group conducts a literature search, generates the program content, assigns duties to team members, and develops milestones, a timeline and budget. A project proposal is submitted and a class presentation is given which covers the project plans. The students manage the project through weekly team meetings, assessment of the progress towards milestones, consultations with their project advisor(s) and the development of progress reports. The results are presented in a final written technical report and oral presentation of the findings. Project planning, management and effective teamwork are emphasized throughout.
