Course Description

The Senior Applied Research Project (SARP) is an integrated learning experience that requires students to develop and apply the theoretical knowledge necessary to tackle a real problem in their field of study. The SARP requires each student to research the chosen problem, propose a solution, present results in both oral and written form, and take at least one significant step toward implementing the solution. A faculty advisor works closely with each student to develop study plans, guide project design, and find a sponsoring organization that offers a project of appropriate scope. Through the Senior Applied Research Project, students begin to build a bridge between their college studies and the practical applications that constitute their future work.
