This course is a two-semester course offered in the second year of the ESP IGERT program. It integrates knowledge gained from the previous ESP courses for an applied-research project. The course will combine IGERT fellows
from all four colleges (Engineering, Business, Health Sciences, and Liberal Arts & Sciences) in teams to design and conduct a ESP research project in one of the focus areas. The projects will be supervised by a group of faculty from the four colleges. The main goal of this course is to serve as a guide and mentoring opportunity for fellows on their dissertation proposal and research project.
