Undergraduate research is a critical part of the academic experience that helps prepare students for today’s careers and tomorrow’s opportunities. LWTech’s Applied Research course will teach students from a broad range of academic disciplines how to use critical-thinking skills to seek innovative solutions to real-world problems.
Students will learn components of the scientific method, as well as engineering and design research principles. Topics will include the research process, literature review and information literacy, hypothesis formation and testing, experimental design, data collection and analysis, communication of findings, and research ethics.
Where appropriate, students will collaborate with industry, other departments, and LWTech’s Innovation Lab to incorporate design principles and produce prototypes. Students are encouraged to present research findings in-house at LWTech’s Annual Applied Research Symposium or at other regional conferences.
The Applied Research Course is currently in development and is expected to launch
