BIST-917 Practicum I
Spring for 2017-2018
Students will be involved in a research project under the supervision of a faculty member. While the consulting class will expose them to short-term projects, the practicum will provide them with an opportunity to implement a combination of the skills they have acquired and to extend them in a limited context. This practical experience should span 3-4 months. The project will be written up as a Master’s paper including the following sections: background to the problem, experimental design, description of the data, analytical methods, results, and interpretation of the latter. This paper will be defended orally, after no fewer than two faculty members (the advisor and one other) have read it and deemed it ready for presentation.
