Remember that there is a summer version of COGS402! Take it instead if you are not planning on graduating in May, as it can be a better time to find interesting internships.
Students in this course must pursue a supervised, collaborative research project. Students are expected to independently seek out a lab or other research environment in which to volunteer. The project that you complete should contribute to the ongoing research of this research group.
Once a student has found a researcher willing to supervise their work, both the student and supervisor must fill out a collaboration agreement and return it to the COGS advisor (in Brock Hall Annex, 0155). The supervisor also provides an evaluation at the end of the course.
This is not an independent study course. Your work is expected to contribute to the research agenda of the people with whom you work. Nor should students merely lend their casual labour to an existing project.
Consult with the COGS Advisor if you are hoping to complete your project with a research group outside UBC (or with group within UBC, if that group is not headed by a UBC faculty member). You may not be paid for the time used in completing this project.
Any intellectual property that is created in the course of your studies at UBC is governed by the University’s policies.
