Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Student design projects are incorporated into classroom and laboratory assignments throughout the curriculum including a senior capstone project in each engineering discipline. Additionally, students participate in a variety of national and regional design competitions sponsored by national professional engineering societies such as S.A.E., A.S.C.E., I.E.E.E., A.S.M.E., and A.C.M. Recent competitions have involved the design of formula race cars, off-road vehicles, human powered vehicles, robotic devices, steel bridges, reinforced concrete canoes, communication devices for the disabled, NASA rocket competition, and remote medical monitoring and diagnostic systems.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The College offers 4-year undergraduate programs in civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering. An environmental engineering emphasis is available within the civil engineering major and a computer engineering emphasis is available within the electrical engineering major. Math, science and engineering fundamentals are emphasized the first two years, followed by two years of specialized training in one of the three majors. A strong core curriculum in communications, arts, social sciences and the humanities is provided for all students. Engineering design is integrated throughout the curriculum and is especially emphasized during the final year of each student's program. All courses are taught by faculty, not graduate students, and personalized academic advisement is emphasized. All laboratories are very well equipped and up-to-date, and students often participate with faculty in sophisticated research. Professionalism is fostered through the student chapters of national professional engineering societies and through the student chapter of Tau Beta Pi, the National Engineering Honor Society. Evening graduate programs are offered in civil, electrical, mechanical and systems engineering, environmental science and computer science.

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.
