Credit Hours: 1

This course is a requirement for the major. Students will use this semester to investigate the feasibility of a research project of their choice. Students who are following the engineering physics major curriculum must chose a project involving design and fabrication of a mechanical device. The project may be designed for an individual or for a team. The course consists of weekly meetings to discuss the progress and possible refinement of the project. The result of the course will be a feasibility report, budget proposal, project schedule, and formal proposal presentation.
