How do Independent Research Positions or Projects Work at University?
I recently completed and presented a project for a class in which my professor was over the moon about. After class, he suggested that next semester I could turn this project (it was a GIS campus project, in which I worked with Services and various other departments to complete) into an independent study. He was not very specific on the details, so I was wondering, how do typical independent research project courses work? How does the grading work? If the topic proves unsuccessful, does that mean I fail? #gis #university #courses #project #research
Hi Ashley, What came to my mind when I read your question was speak to current Researchers and get their input. I am currently in the Online MS for CS program at Gatech and upon searching their website came up with the form you can send in to run your project by their department: http://www.research.gatech.edu/contact-us. I am also forwarding your question to one of my teachers who works in Education at Gatech.

- Research Universities that specialize in your topic and contact their Research Depts.
