An individually tailored, supervised project on a subject related to mechanical engineering. The content and expectations are formalized in negotiations between the student and the faculty sponsor. This course may only be taken in the second half of a student’s master degree program. All independent studies must be supervised by a current ME instructor (exceptions must be approved by the Mechanical Engineering Program Chair) and must rely on material from prior ME courses. The independent study project proposal form (see https://ep.jhu.edu/current-students/student-forms/) must be approved prior to registration.
