Student Design Projects Description

Design projects are required in the undergraduate curricula of our traditional engineering departments. Also, there are courses that emphasize teamwork and communication skills within design projects activities. The content of each department’s design course reflects the skills and activities pertinent to the specific engineering major. Some students chose to tackle interdisciplinary design projects that benefit from expertise in multiple engineering specialties. Specific design projects cover a wide variety of topics -- devices for the energy industry, chemical plants and processes, medical devices, gaming and entertainment, robotics, global health devices, clean water and sustainability -- to name a few. The Oshman Engineering Design Kitchen serves every department in the School of Engineering and provides state-of-the-art equipment as well as technical support for students engaged in design projects.
