Student Design Projects Description

All students are required to have a design experience. Most take a full year of a senior design class developed by their department. Some elect the Enterprise Program where students are involved in design projects over a two or three year period. All require team participation and technical written and oral reports. Students participate in a number of design projects, both within the University and in regional and national competition. Chemical engineering students work in teams on a year-long plant design and participate in AIChE-sponsored design competitions. Civil engineers participate in the regional and national concrete canoe races, a regional bridge building competition, and a timber beam competition. Engineers from many disciplines participate in design competitions through the Enterprise Program. These include mini-baja, formula car, clean snowmobile challenge, and first robotics.
