Student Design Projects Description

Cadet Summer Research Program (CSRP) is an individual study and research supervised by a faculty member. The main outcome of this research is to demonstrate the framing and resolving of ill-defined problems by modeling the behavior of engineers and officers in real-world situations. The topics vary and can be established with the department head.

In 2014, the CSRP allowed 171 cadets to work in their fields of expertise while gaining outstanding exposure to operational issues. Many participants are able to present their research in professional forums.
