COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
CH489 INDIVIDUAL RESEARCH I 2023 1 Chemistry & Life Science 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This undergraduate research course is designed to significantly advance the cadet's knowledge and comprehension of science and/or engineering by answering a real world scientific question. Course work includes defining a problem, understanding related issues, designing an experimental approach, analyzing data, and drawing conclusions. By applying the scientific method to attempt to solve an actual problem, cadets will expand their critical thinking and intellectual capability. Cadets are supervised by a faculty advisor with expertise in the chosen research area. Cadets conduct research individually but may be part of a larger group working on a project with a broad scope. The minimum requirement for moving onto CH490 is a defined problem and hypothesis, a background in related research, and an experimental design. The Head of the Department will approve cadet projects. Lessons and labs will be established through consultation between cadet and advisor. Requirements include both written and oral progress reports.

SCOPE
Cadets normally make a commitment to complete both CH489 and CH490. Cadets will be offered a choice of projects and will consult with potential faculty advisors. The faculty advisor individually supervises the cadet in the research project selected by him/her and approved by the Department. The cadet, with the assistance of his/her faculty advisor, must obtain the necessary theoretical background, and develop the techniques and procedures required. Requirements include periodic oral and/or written reports over the course of the semester. At the completion of this course, cadets submit an interim report.

CH489 INDIVDL RESEARCH-CHEMISTRY 1991 1 Chemistry & Life Science 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
Two terms of work (6.0 credit hours) are normally required for CH489-CH490 projects. A faculty advisor individually supervises the cadet in a research program selected by him/her and approved by the department.
