Student Design Projects Description

All York College engineering majors are required to complete a number of engineering design projects as members of a design team. Engineering design projects begin in the freshman year as part of the Engineering Practice and Design Studio (EPADS) courses and finish in the senior year as part of Thermal System Design, and Capstone Design I and II courses. The projects are generated from current technical needs of the Industry Advisory Council or are competitions sponsored by various technical societies and/or agencies. Projects generally include creative conception, design, fabrication, testing, and performance of a physical system or component. Written reports and oral presentations are generally required, the latter being made before a group of faculty, students, project sponsors, parents, and visiting evaluators from local industry.
