About the Departmental Programs

Each NCSSM department at NCSSM implements its own uniquely designed programs led by the expertise of NCSSM faculty who serve as the mentor/advisor. Students engage in a student-driven research, entrepreneurship, or design project as part of an advanced (4000 level course) with the guidance and support of the NCSSM faculty.  

Full engagement in an independent or small group project alongside peers who have a similar passion for the field of interest make these semester/multi semester opportunities one of a kind.  Departmental research and innovation programs are open to all residential students to apply or register for enrollment at their respective campuses.
