ETM Student Research
Research at ETM provides a link between engineering, science, and management disciplines. It results in theory, methods, and actionable recommendations that help organizations achieve strategic and operational objectives through technology.
Research groups are organized by full-time faculty, who each bring unique expertise and interests to their group. Ph.D. students and MS students, who are working on their capstone, choose the research advisor who best fits their interests. View the Faculty Research page for more information.
All ETM courses require in-class research projects that help students develop research and communication skills and that apply course content to real-world applications. Many students choose topics that align with their current jobs. While not required, some students turn their class projects into publications.
Ph.D. students work under the guidance of faculty on a topic that closely aligns with their interests and prior expertise.
