Information for Faculty
The faculty lead is an integral part of an applied research project. Their specialized knowledge and experience allow them to direct the research in a way that optimizes results for their industry partner. They also ensure that the research assistant and/or research associate can progress as an industry professional through a positive real-world learning experience. As for personal gain, the faculty lead benefits from professional development, and the ability to apply what they have learned and accomplished into their course-based teaching.
