  • The project is part of a minimum six-week cooperative internship conducted in an industrial, governmental, or other organization having an established safety program or in the process of implementing a safety program.

  • An executive summary (2-page maximum) of the project that must be approved by the student’s defense committee.

  • A minimum GPA of 3.00 is required for students to remain in good standing.

  • At least two semesters in residence are required.
