RRR Curriculum Plan

The curriculum includes:

1)      Core courses that cover the foundations for RRR,

2)      Elective courses that can be selected from multiple disciplines,

3)      Classes in project management and leadership, and

4)      Capstone projects.

We offer a flexible academic curriculum that cuts across multiple departments and allows students to tailor their studies to personal interests and goals by selecting courses from different concentrations. A typical plan of study consists of the following requirements:

1)      RRR Foundations (12 hours)

2)      RRR Applications (9 hours)

3)      RRR Management, Law and Policy (6 hours)

4)      Capstone Project (3 hours)

Courses that can be used for fulfilling the degree requirements include:

RRR Foundations: CE 6300, CE 6305, CE 6310, CE 5999a, CE 5999b, EECE 6361, EECE 6362, BIOS 6341, BIOS 6342, BIOS 7323.

RRR Applications: CE 5240, EECE 5287, EECE 6304, CS 6386, CS 5285, LWEC 8431.

RRR Management, Law and Policy: CE 5300, ENVE 5305, MGT 6480, LWEC 8430, ENGM 5700, ENGM 6500.   

Capstone Projects: One of CE 7899, ENVE 7899, CS 8390, EECE 7899, BME 7899, or ME 7899. The capstone projects can be performed during the summer in research centers/institutes that conduct RRR related projects (e.g., LASIR, VECTOR, ISIS, ISDE, CRISS)
