52-390 BXA Undergraduate Research Project, Fall, Spring, or Summer: 3,6,9,12 units
The BXA Undergraduate Research Project is for students who want to work on a self-designed project with the one-to-one guidance of a faculty advisor. The project should be interdisciplinary in nature, and can be a scholarly and/or creative endeavor. The project may take the form of a written thesis, a compilation of creative works, an outreach project, etc. The project topic must be pre-approved by the faculty member who agrees to supervise the project and assign a letter grade for the course. Projects are to be completed in one semester, may be worth 3, 6, 9, or 12 units of academic credit, and cannot be taken concurrently with the BXA Capstone Project during the senior year. To register, students must submit an "Undergraduate Research Project Proposal Form" signed by both the student and the faculty advisor, along with a proposal, to the BXA Director/Academic Advisor.

For more information on how to register for the BXA Undergraduate Research Project course, contact your BXA academic advisor. Applications are available in the Solar Decathlon House or download (PDF).

Many BXA students have received Small Undergraduate Research Grants (SURG) to help fund their research projects. For more information on SURG grants, visit the Undergraduate Research Office web site: http://www.cmu.edu/uro/
