Areas of Study
All students are required to manage a research or design project and communicate the results in the form of a thesis or final report. In addition, students are strongly encouraged to participate in the many research projects that are conducted at the Composite Materials and Engineering Center. These practical training opportunities are essential to translating a breadth of information on materials, equipment, and industrial problem solving.
More than 150 advanced degrees have been earned by students who worked under the guidance of the CMEC. Four of these students have received the International Wood Award for Best Graduate Research. For a list of those who have finished their degrees and their theses and dissertation titles, visit the Graduate Students Theses page.
