EnvrSust 9200X: Consulting Project
The purpose of this course is to give students an opportunity to work with the Client in a non-academic, applied setting. Members of each Consulting Group will jointly undertake environmental research. Upon completion of the course, each Consulting Group will make a formal presentation of their research findings and recommendations and will provide their Client with a professional quality report.
Success in this course requires each student to undertake both secondary and primary research. Secondary research is defined here as a review of data, including documents, that has been published in some form, such as scholarly books and articles, industry or government reports, and newspaper articles. Primary research means the collection and analysis of quantitative and/or qualitative data, including verbal or written statements from people, or from governmental or other documents.
The course Instructor will present the projects and students will compete for the projects.
