Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Manufacturing Engineering students complete a two semester senior design experience. This first course is designed to give students the experience of the engineering design process by designing realistic products for manufacture. Design projects are managed by teams of students, industry mentors and faculty advisors.
The second semester is a study of dedicated and flexible manufacturing systems through the design, building and testing of a flexible manufacturing cell that produes a discrete family of parts. Design of part transfer, tooling, sensing, production control and integrated inspection systems are be emphasized.
During the course students design a functional, multi-operation production system for a family of parts. System design includes selection, setup and operation of appropriate processes, development of material transfer systems, part holding and tool guidance devices, design and implementation of a sensing and control architecture, integration of quality assurance mechanisms, and employment of sound safety considerations.
The new Computer Engineering, Plastics Engineering and Mechanical Engineering programs will have similar capstone design experiences as that curriculum gets developed.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

UW-Stout is Wisconsin's Polytechnic University and a special mission university within the University of Wisconsin System. UW-Stout's programs prepare students to meet the demands of today's technological workplace. The College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics is proud of the 14 undergraduate and five graduate degree programs we offer. UW-Stout is set apart from other institutions for many reasons, including:

A "hands-on, minds-on" philosophy that encourages students to learn not only through the traditional methods of instruction, but also through applying theory to practice. Facilities are balanced almost equally between classrooms and laboratories. At least 25 percent of instruction takes place in one of UW-Stout's excellent laboratories
where students test theories learned in the classroom through work with real problems.

The opportunity for students to gain valuable professional experience before they graduate by participating in one of UW-Stout's off-campus programs, in addition to the classroom and laboratory experience. Students can choose from a cooperative education experience, a field experience or an internship. These supervised work experiences allow students to apply classroom theory to real problems. Work may be part- or full-time, for a summer or longer, in a position related to the student's major. Most often students are paid for their work as they earn academic credit.

A focus on career development. Each of the programs within the College of Science,Technology, Engineering and Mathematics is focused on a specific profession. The consistently high employment rate of UW-Stout graduates of nearly 100 percent indicates the strength and focus of the individual programs.

Opportunities to gain leadership experience in professional student organizations. Within the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, more than 25 professional organizations have student chapters on campus. Participation in these organizations complements professional development and provides students more opportunities to learn in real world settings.

A unique blending of courses in career and professional areas with courses in the arts and sciences. Merging general with professional education helps students to become well-rounded.

An environment where teamwork is stressed. Many classes enable students to work in a cooperative teamwork setting. Teamwork and communication skills are highly valued and expected by today's employers.

A faculty whose primary goal is teaching. UW-Stout's national reputation, modern facilities and highly specialized programs enable the university to attract top educators. Many are recognized leaders in their fields, and many come to the university after holding high-level positions in national or international firms. Actively involved in advising students, faculty are willing to answer students' questions and help them solve problems.

Excellent facilities that are modern and well-equipped, and that support the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics specialized programs. The college houses some of the most comprehensive teaching laboratories in the nation.

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.
