PhD Research Rotations
SE has implemented a Research Rotation requirement for all first year PhD students. The primary goals are to provide an organized way for the students to explore different options for research and to provide faculty a chance to get to know the students and evaluate their potential for doing the type of research needed by the faculty.
As part of the requirement, all first year PhD students are required to participate in at least two rotations, each lasting a half semester, during their first year. The students arrange with individual faculty for the rotations and register for 2-4 credits of SE 900 Research for each rotation.
