Student Design Projects Description

Over two-thirds of our engineering courses include a laboratory component and all laboratory components include design projects. Design begins in the first year with an integrated design build experience across the majors. Almost all sophomore, junior and senior engineering courses include design and build projects. The required, engineering faculty supervised, three alternating semester cooperative education experience in industry furthers and enhances the design education of all engineering students. All Grand Valley engineering graduates complete a two-semester senior capstone design project while participating on a multidisciplinary design team. These industry sponsored capstone design projects require students to design, build, test and delivery of a product or process to the client sponsor.
