This course is designed to develop your skills in technical communication and scientific research practices.

The technical communication aspect of this course is concerned with sharpening your powers of oral and written persuasion, known to the scientific community as a proposal presentation and writing.

The scientific research practices aspect of this course is concerned with teaching you to think like a scientist so you will be able to formulate a hypothesis, design experiments to test the hypothesis, and interpret results.

J.P. Hornak, 1051-501, 2006


Each student is required to research, write, and present a proposal for an independent research project.

If you are planning to take 1051-502 and -503,your proposal is a request to be granted permission to perform one to five credit hours per quarter of research with a faculty advisor in 1051-502 and/or -503.

Sounds like a lot of writing! proposal for an independent research project.

It is, but the only way to become good at something is repetition!

Your major isImaging Science.

So shouldn’t you get some training as a scientist?

Your major isImaging Science.

So shouldn’t you get some training as ascientist?

But I am not going to do research when I graduate.

But I am not going to do research when I graduate.

So, you may not use IDL, Linear Systems, Color

Science, etc, but we still require them!

My Course Philosophy proposal for an independent research project.

- Minimize burdens

- Eliminate unnecessary hurdles

- Every assignment has a purpose

J.P. Hornak, 1051-501, 2006


Evaluation proposal for an independent research project.

- No Exams

- Grade based on your performance on assignments

- Assignment due dates will be set and adhered to.

- You will not receive a grade in this course, nor will

you be able to register for 1051-502, unless your

research proposal is approved.
