Graduate research is a complicated process which many engineering and science students aspire to undertake. The complexity of the process can lead to failures for even the most brilliant students. Success in graduate-level research requires not only a high level of intellectual ability, but also a high level of project management skills. This self-paced guide covers topics ranging from how to select an appropriate research problem to how to schedule and execute research tasks. It adopts a project management approach to planning and implementing research in engineering and science. It is intended to be of use to students, academic advisors, research advisors and administrators in any academic institution offering graduate research in engineering and science.
