Creative Inquiry

In Bioengineering, students are usually selected for Creative Inquiry teams through a competitive application process and permission from faculty team leader(s). Find information on projects and team leaders.

Applications for students to join CI teams will be due Friday May 23 by 4:30 p.m. Please follow the instructions for submission:

  • Fill out application. Please save it so that the file name is CIsXXName (where XX is the section number and Name is your last name).
  • Apply to a team only if you can make the indicated fall semester meeting times; if the meeting time is listed as TBA, please include your class schedule with your applications.
  • Email with subject line: Creative Inquiry Section XX (where XX is the section number or name).

Note: If your email does not have the proper subject line, your application will be discarded without review. If you emailed an old application earlier, please fill out the new one and send it in according to the instructions.

If you want to apply to more than one section, please indicate in your email the order of your preferences.
