The Professional Experience Project is designed to give practical, hands-on training and experience in a meaningful work environment, with both science and business content. The project engages students in the issues, techniques, current practices, climate and culture of a particular industry sector. Eligible students are required to have taken a minimum of 15 credits of coursework, including MST 6010, 6012, 6020, 6021, 6022, 6023, and 6600. The project must be approved following the program guidelines. A final exam/presentation, which is evaluated on a pass/fail basis, is given at the end of the project. The presentation is open to the public. A final report is prepared by the student, which is considered a public document. The student's supervisory committee assigns a grade when the project, final presentation, and final report have been completed.
