This collection contains research reports authored by students and student teams in the Engineering and Technology Management program at Portland State University (PSU), and serve to partially fulfill their requirements for Master's degrees in Engineering and Technology Management.

Many reports are openly available to researchers anywhere. However, due to the inclusion of proprietary content in the reports many are limited to PSU students, staff and faculty.
