ENGT-510
0 Credits
This faculty directed undergraduate research experience involves student(s) in a research project. Under the guidance of CET faculty and using one or a variety of methods, students will collect data and contribute to problem solving within a research environment. As an undergraduate research experience, emphasis is on the process of scientific research, including problem definition, formulating a research plan, data collection/analysis and interpretation based on existing research. Department permission is required.
PACK-783
3 Credits
The study of instrumentation systems for analysis, evaluation and application of shock and vibration test methods to develop protective package designs and effective product/package interaction. A research paper is required.
PACK-422
3 Credits
The course defines the factors involved in assessing the potential damage to packaged items resulting from impact and vibration forces in the handling, transport and storage environments. Students will be instructed in the use of basic shock and vibration test equipment, apply standard test protocols and develop specific testing protocols from measured field data. Based on data generated from testing activities, students will develop cushion designs to protect sensitive product components.
PACK-599
1 - 3 Credits
Independent study, in consultation with the instructor, on any packaging-related topic. Approvals are necessary from the department chair. (Undergraduate Research and Independent Study (PACK-598 and 599) combined total credit allowed is limited to a maximum of 3 credits. Independent Study total credit limit maximum of eight credits.
PACK-791
0 Credits
Continuation of Thesis
PACK-798
0 Credits
Continuation of Graduate Project
PACK-797
1 - 3 Credits
The purpose of this course is to provide students the opportunity to conduct research, develop a plan and evaluation components and submit the project as a demonstration of final proficiency in the program. The topic selected by the student will be guided by the faculty teaching the class and it will require the student to coalesce and incorporate into the final project a culmination of all their course work in the program to date.
PACK-790
1 - 6 Credits
A thesis is based on experimental evidence obtained by the candidate in an appropriate topic demonstrating the extension of theory into practice. A written proposal which is defended and authorized by the faculty advisor/committee followed by a formal written thesis and oral presentation of findings are required. Typically the candidate will have completed research methods, data analysis and graduate writing strategies prior to enrolling in this course and will start the thesis process as soon as they have completed these courses to allow them to finish the thesis when they have finished their coursework. The candidate must obtain the approval of their graduate adviser who will guide the thesis before registering for this course.
