Student Design Projects Description

(1) Students enrolled in the Composite Materials Engineering major face challenging design problems throughout their studies, culminating in the senior-level capstone design project. In the most recent offering of this two-course series, students are asked to propose a product that incorporates composite materials in a manner that gives the product a competitive advantage over current products found in the same market. Students must demonstrate a sound business case for the proposed product. Students then focus their efforts on the design, analysis, fabrication, and testing of a fully functioning prototype. (2) Outside of the classroom, students enrolled in the Composite Materials Engineering major have been involved in a number of design projects and competitions through student club activities.
