Research & Consulting Associates

Candidates who are interested in conducting MTI research studies must first undergo an in-depth certification process. Each candidate is required to submit a completed application with a résumé, and a sample of published research. The Research Associates Policy Oversight Committee (RAPOC), composed of the department heads or representatives of the SJSU academic departments with which MTI works most often, reviews the applications and recommends certification where appropriate. Certification is approved by the executive director and must be renewed every five years.
