Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

All senior students in the Biomedical, Electrical, Industrial & Systems, and Mechanical Engineering programs participate on Multidisciplinary Senior Design teams to complete a two-semester capstone project. Teams may also include Computer Engineers, as well as students from outside the College of Engineering (e.g. Business, Industrial Design, or Imaging Science). Teams are typically composed of four to eight members, with one student acting as the team leader or project manager. Many of the students in leadership roles on the team complete a Design Project Leadership course prior to the project initiation. This course builds skills in project planning, management, leadership, and systems engineering. All teams have a faculty mentor who works with them on a weekly basis. Formal project reviews by faculty, sponsors, and customers are conducted every 3-4 weeks. Project proposals are solicited from industrial associates and community organizations, as well as from RIT faculty, staff, and students. Each proposal is reviewed by a multidisciplinary faculty team to estimate the required project skills, scope, and academic fit.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

The AMPrint Center conducts applied research pertaining to additive manufacturing in its different forms which include 3D printing and multi-functional printing. Research is conducted in three basic categories that include (1) design and synthesis of advanced functional materials: (2) development of novel additive manufacturing technologies; and (3) design of innovative devices and products that take advantage of unique capabilities of additive technologies. The Center's research is highly interdisciplinary and pulls together faculty and students from engineering, science, design, and business disciplines. Support for technology transfer and start-up company formation is provided through the Simone Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The AMPrint Center is operated under the New York State Center for Advanced Technologies (CAT) program, and also receives considerable funding from federal and industry sources.

Carlson Center for Imaging Science are research and teaching laboratories dedicated to imaging science and imaging applications, including sensors, digital image processing, remote sensing, vision and perception, biomedical imaging, color science, printing, optics, astronomy, algorithm development, ancient document reconstruction, atmospheric monitoring, evironmental forecasting, disaster response, and nano-imaging. Degrees are offered at the bachelor, master and doctoral levels.

Fuel Cell/Micro Channel Research

In this laboratory, fundamental studies on two-phase flow (liquid and gas) and water formation and transport within fuel cell channels are performed. Proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells are being pursued by many automotive manufacturers as a viable option to replace the internal combustion engine. PEM fuel cells are supplied with hydrogen and oxygen, which react to form electricity with byproducts of heat and water. The goal in this lab is to gain a better understanding of the water that is formed during this reaction and the mechanisms for its removal from the cell. This work is being performed under a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy. The laboratory also engages in fundamental research related to boiling and micochannels. Single-phase and flow boiling in microchannels is investigated to undersatnd the fundamental phenomena at microscale and apply these findings in advanced high heat flux removal from IC chips. The work in the laboratory is funded by industry, state and federal sources. The lab places a heavy emphasis on educating undergraduate and graduate students.
