Applied Learning & Research

Our students develop the hands-on applied learning and research experience to do more on day one--in class, in their internship, and in their career.
In this Section

Our mission is to provide you with hands-on experience to ensure you are career-ready upon graduation. How do we do that? By offering experiential learning opportunities where you’ll apply what you’ve learned in the classroom to build skills for the real world. You'll benefit from a variety of hands-on experiences.

Capstone Projects

This is your chance to showcase what you’ve created or learned. Maybe you (or your team) designed an original product or completed a community service project.
