Research at KSI

A primary element of KSI's curriculum which differentiates it from many MS Degree programs is the MS Research Project. The MS Project is required for all students and involves three full courses of study (nine total credit hours).

Several factors make the MS Project a cornerstone of the KSI learning experience as well as a defining attribute of the intellectual creativity and exploration that pervades the Institute. These factors include the relative uniqueness and rigorous nature of the MS Project; the length of time it takes to complete; and the fact that students are encouraged to create real-world applications in the course of research and development of the project.
