As a MIMSE student, you must complete six credit hours of project research (IMS 675) as part of the program of study for your degree. This research activity is carried out under the supervision of your graduate committee chairman, a member of the Institute’s faculty. The project is aligned with your interests and may be conducted as part of an IMSE Institute/Industry internship, an activity supporting faculty research, or in response to an industry need.

The project results are documented in a formal technical report prepared by the student. At the final oral examination for the degree, the student presents and defends the project activity and report before the graduate committee. Following acceptance of the report, it is submitted to the IMSE Institute, which is kept on permanent file and made available to Institute members and the general public.
