Custom Projects

From time to time, project supervisors will develop custom student research projects to fit with a student's particular interests or skills.

If you are interested in doing a custom student research project, please email the project supervisor of your choice directly. We recommend that you carefully review their area of research before you contact them.

Please note that the decision of whether to develop a custom student project is at the full discretion of the project supervisor.
