Responsible Conduct in Research Requirement

All Graduate students need to complete the RCR (Responsible Conduct in Research) CITI module requirement. This information is relevant for you as you prepare for your work in industry as many of you will manage research teams, manage data and will need to be aware of financial conflict of interests.  This is a College of Engineering requirement and must be completed before you graduate.  For the online portion, there are 7 modules that take between 20-30 minutes each.
