Student Design Projects Description

All ABET accredited undergraduate engineering degree programs require capstone design courses that require students to either work in teams or as individuals on design projects. The projects require students to use fundamental principles in engineering, science, and mathematics, together with other experiences to solve a specific, open-ended design problem. An example is the Senior Design Project Course in Mechanical Engineering, the RITST project sponsored by Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE). The team was required to develop a tool for the removal and installation of industrial thermocouples in power generation turbines that would work at a distance up to 4 feet, through a 4 inch access point, in the dark, and operate at high temperatures.
