In addition to the requirements specified by Barrett, The Honors College, the Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering programs at The Polytechnic School in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering offer honors students several opportunities for honors credit and thesis research. The engineering program in the Polytechnic School is where project-based courses are the norm and innovation and an entrepreneurial focus is crucial to success. Our diverse faculty at poly study topics ranging from Systems Engineering, Automotive Systems, Mechanical Systems, Electrical Systems, Engineering Education, Global Design, Manufacturing, and Robotics, to name a few.
Most courses in EGR are offered for honors credit through the honors enrichment contract. Students wishing to receive honors credit should confer with the course instructor at the beginning of the semester in order to develop a mutually acceptable plan for the honors contract activity. Most honors contracts involve either a project that extends the ideas and techniques covered in the course or outside research on topics relevant to the course work. Students have the responsibility to apply for the honors contract through Barrett, The Honors College. The Honors College contacts the instructor to approve the contract only after the student has initiated the process. Some courses have honors sections. Honors credit should be conducted in conjunction with an active faculty member, and the faculty member should be qualified to evaluate your performance in your selected project.
Typically students reach out to professors in the Spring before graduation and submit their prospectus over the Summer.
Honors contracts are created on a case-by-case basis; you should reach out to a faculty member you are interested in working with more to develop a plan for your contract. Some successful examples include:
