Student Design Projects Description

Each department in the College of Engineering requires design projects throughout the curriculum, with a major design sequence in the senior year. Each senior project requires a complete design experience, from problem statement to final prototype and documentation. Students work in teams, and written and oral reports are required. Many projects, but not all, are sponsored by industry for the cost of components and materials. In 2013, our senior capstone design program was recognized by the National Academy of Engineering as one of the best in the nation in it's report, "Infusing Real-World Experiences into Engineering Education". It was highlighted it as one of seven top national capstone programs alongside Harvey Mudd College and Michigan Technical University.
