Research proposal is a sort of extended writing assignment. It normally requires that you identify a focal area of research related to a technology topic within this course, focus the topic through some general

background reading, identify a clear research question, marshal primary and secondary resources to answer the question, and present the argument in a clear and creative manner, with proper citations.

I ask that you be clear and concise in demonstrating how your thoughts developed on the topic at hand, but also that your work be readable, lively, and persuasive. You should keep in mind the five steps when

developing your proposal:

Step 1: Focus your topic through some general background readings

– Search 1-3 literature/research articles in Google Scholar using key words of your topic

– Set forth the scope of the your research proposal

– Present arguments in a clear and creative manner with proper citations of these papers

Step 2: Specify a clear and concise research question

– Narrow down your idea to a very specific one, then go deep. Remember you only have 2 pages to write.

Step 3: Marshal specific methods and resources you can use to answer the question

– Interview with managers? Questionnaire survey with consumers? Collect data from other

sources?

Step 4: Discuss expected outcomes and importance/contribution of your research

– Your expected findings and results from this research

– Your timeline of completing this research

– Important recommendations/suggestions that your research can provide to the industry

Step 5: Present a feasible timeline to complete this research

– Set up a goal, and accomplish it step-by-step

Once completing these five steps, you should have generated an outline for your research proposal. You then extend the outline into a 2-page full proposal. You can refer to Undergraduate Research Proposal

assignment at any stage, from brainstorming to final revisions. I encourage you to use these resources to develop your proposal.
