METEO 480M Undergraduate Research (3)
The lecture portion of the course, which accounts for one-third of the course grade, covers topics such as the elements of good scientific writing, the structure of scientific manuscripts, the mechanics of oral and poster presentations at science meetings, scientific peer review, and ethics in science. For the remaining two-thirds of the course grade, students perform research under the guidance of a faculty member. Students select the faculty member based on matching general research interests. A student's academic adviser typically assists in the process of matching a student to a research project supervisor. In consultation with their research project supervisor, students then decide on a specific research topic.
