Master's Projects are interdisciplinary capstone experiences that enable SEAS master's students to develop solutions to pressing problems faced by real-world clients. Students work on research teams with client organizations and faculty advisors to address complex environmental issues and design innovative, impactful products. This hands-on experience enables students to develop transferable skills that will help them secure future jobs and internships. Project ideas are developed by faculty, students, and organizations.
SEAS students are required to enroll in the Master's Project Course (EAS 701.888) and must submit a project report at the end of the experience. The Master's Project Handbook provides detailed information about project structure, planning, and completion requirements.
Projects provide students the opportunity to analyze and propose solutions to real-world environmental problems. Teams of 5+ students develop the project scope based on a proposed idea from the sponsoring organization, referred to as the client. The team works with the client until project completion.
