Thesis Research

There is no separate requirement for a Junior or Senior Project or Independent Work in addition to the requirements in your home department, but to receive the Certificate you must do Independent Work or a Senior Thesis in your home department. We assume you will find a thesis that satisfies your interests in Engineering Biology among theses offered in your department. Many students do their theses under the direction of a faculty member in another department or co-advised by a faculty member in their department and one in another department. You can check with the Engineering Biology Office to get a listing of faculty who sponsor interdisciplinary topics that relate to Engineering Biology. Arrangements for theses are at the discretion and by approval of your home department.
