Math 597 – Graduate Project

The culminating experience is a project, which replaces the standard comprehensive examinations or thesis requirements. Students work in teams on projects that are sponsored and funded by local industrial firms.  Each team is supervised by a faculty member.  The project is intended to provide a realistic industrial-like experience, complete with deadlines and a written final report, where students can put what they have learned to work, and where success is based on individual initiative, teamwork, and communication skills.
