Information about Special Project

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Special projects require a committee consisting of at least two regular, tenure-track, ECE faculty, one of which will serve as project advisor. A student desiring to do a special project needs to identify the project advisor and other committee members. The student should prepare a project description and secure approval from the committee members. A general petition together with the approved project description should be filed well before the start of the semester in which the special project will take place. Once the Director of Graduate Studies has approved the project and project committee, the student may enroll in ECE 6393.

At the end of the semester, the student should prepare a written report, which should be successfully defended in the presence of the committee. If desired, and warranted by the progress made, the student may request (through a general petition) to enroll in ECE 7393 for another semester to continue work on the project. This request should be made through a general petition, accompanied by the approved progress report and a statement of work to be accomplished. Such requests must be made at least three weeks before the start of the semester.

The Special Project proposal form must be accompanied by the committee form and a general petition, and be submitted by the deadline in the dept. calendar for review by ECE director of graduate studies.
