EGM 580. Graduate Project Continuum

One - Three Credits

EGM students may elect a three-credit-hour industry-based project option. The student, working with industry, will select a project topic derived from an existing need/interest in industry under the guidance of a faculty project advisor selected by mutual agreement of the student and faculty member. When the project is completed and approved by the Project Advisor, bound copies of the approved report will be filed in the department office and in Farley Library for record. A grade will be awarded each semester the student is enrolled in EGM 580. At project completion, a completion grade will be awarded by converting one credit-hour of EGM 580 to one credit-hour of EGM 581 (Graduate Project Completion). EGM 580 credit does not apply toward meeting degree requirements until a grade for EGM 581 is recorded. Only two hours of credit for EGM 580 may apply toward degree requirements (although the student may enroll in a total of more than two credit hours of continuum if project completion extends to additional semesters).
