Additional topics for three hours of credit are manufacturing cost studies, estimating, sources of costs, allocation of costs and justifications. Students should register for either two or three hours, based on specific program requirements.



ETECH-603: Senior Honors Project 1 (3 hours)

The Senior Honors Project is an optional way to earn Departmental Academic Honors for students who are members of the Honors College. The course is a two semester sequence where the student undertakes a year-long research project or creative endeavor under the guidance of a faculty member to expand their knowledge in an area integral to their academic growth and development. The Senior Honors Project 1 is the first course in the sequence and will focus on the fundamental development of the project and preliminary scope of work to be completed. Students will receive a grade of A, B, IP (in progress) or NC (no credit) for each enrollment of the Senior Honors Project. A grade of NC voids the process and the student must then complete their Departmental Academic Honors in the traditional way.



ETECH-604: Senior Honors Project 2 (3 hours)

The Senior Honors Project is an optional way to earn Departmental Academic Honors for students who are members of the Honors College. The course is a two semester sequence where the student undertakes a year-long research project or creative endeavor under the guidance of a faculty member to expand their knowledge in an area integral to their academic growth and development. The Senior Honors Project 2 is the culmination of the project started in Senior Honors Project 1 and will result in a public presentation of the work. Students must earn a grade of A or B to receive credit for this course. Failure to complete the course with a grade of A or B will void this option and students will have to satisfy their Departmental Academic Honors requirement in the traditional way. There will be no IP (in progress) or IN (incomplete) grades for this course. Projects must be done by the end of the spring term to count towards Departmental Academic Honors requirements. Prerequisite: Senior Honors Project 1.
