applying relevant knowledge obtained from their degree

and will contribute to operational improvement of the employer's workplace, and
the project is of the student's own design but developed in consultation with the workplace supervisor

ervisor will provide adequate supervision to the student and access to required
resources for the duration of the Independent Project
