Student Design Projects Description

Undergraduate: Students participate in design projects through both the major curricula and co-curricular projects such as the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle, Agua Clara, FSAE Racecar, Engineers Without Borders, Mars Rover, Baja SAE, CU Genetically Engineered Machines (CUGEM), Engineering World Health, and Genetically Engineered Machines.


MEng: A design project is required for the MEng professional degree. It generally carries 3-12 academic credits. The type of project varies by graduate field. Although some projects are completed individually, others are completed in small teams. Projects vary from those with a high design component to those developing technology management skills, and to those approaching thesis research. Some projects encompassing multiple fields, such as systems engineering, are team based and may involve international competitions.
