Student Design Projects Description

Several departments offer their own first-year design courses patterned from the college course, but emphasizing design problems common to those majors. All curricula integrate design into a number of elective and required courses throughout the four years. This culminates in a senior capstone course experience, involving design projects solving problems usually submitted by local or regional industry. Students also may elect to take a 400-level multidisciplinary engineering design course to analyze industrial design problems, develop concepts, and in most cases build a working prototype or pilot model of their solution.
