Project Based Learning

Project Based Learning is the cornerstone of our curriculum and the student experience. Students work on a project based on real-world problems and needs that relate to the course content. These projects tend to span over a long period of time, possibly the entire semester. Our professors work with students throughout the project, sharing their areas of expertise and shaping their students into the leaders of tomorrow.
