ENGR8750 - Engr Research Project Dev II
Fall 2012 Doctoral

This course builds a strong background in research proposal development that can be effectively investigated and concluded as appropriate in the form of publishable outcomes. Synthesis occurs in the process of writing and presenting a formal proposal for a research project, as well as in the discussion of each other's proposals in the seminar. The seminar focuses on the delineation of a field problem and the plan for conducting substantive research leading to the resolution of or recommendations on the problem. After examining the theoretical bases of problem-solving methodology from scientific perspective, the student evaluates the current status of the problem, surveys relevant research related to the problem, and evaluates that research. In addition, this course is the culmination of the past year's work resulting in a successful defense of each candidate's Ph.D. proposal. Each student participates in the presentations and defense of the classmates and learn from each others' experiences during the conduct of this class. Acceptance of a paper for presentation and publication in the proceedings of a professional conference approved by the Dean, advisor and program coordinator is a requirement for the successful completion of this course.
