Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Students participate in engineering design throughout the curriculum. This begins in the freshman year in the Engineering Practices Introductory Course Sequence (EPICS), and concludes with project courses in the senior year. EPICS is a two course sequence in the freshman and sophomore years. It is designed to prepare students for their upper division courses and to develop some of the key skills of the professional engineer: the ability to solve complex, open-ended problems; the ability to self-educate; and the ability to communicate effectively. Problem-solving
skills are developed through projects, which the students solve in teams. They learn to use the computer as a problem-solving tool, and build skills in modern productivity and engineering software packages. Most design
activities in the junior year concentrate in building design competencies in a discipline. The EPICS skills are used in the junior and senior design projects, and at the senior level these projects embrace system level issues and have technical depth aligning with the discipline in a student's
major. In some cases the senior design projects have extended multidisciplinary attributes and are offered in cross-departmental settings.

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

In high school, you should take the following courses:

4 Years of English
4 Years of college prep/advanced mathematics (including trig or pre-calc)
3 Years of history or social studies
3 Years of lab science (one year must be chemistry or physics, both are recommended if available)
2 Years of academic electives (computer science, STEM, engineering)
1 Year of foreign language

Trigonometry is our minimum math requirement; however, you should complete pre-calculus or calculus if you have the opportunity to do so.

You should rank in the upper one-third of your high school class and have strong ACT or SAT scores. We do not require a writing test for admission, but we will accept the SAT with writing or the ACT with or without the optional writing test. We do not have a preference on the SAT or ACT exam. We will use your highest composite score from either test.

Admitted Student Profile
SAT Comp (CR+M): 1310-1420
ACT Comp: 29-32
GPA: 3.74 - 4.00

If you are home-schooled or if your high school does not rank or give grades, we will work with you to fairly evaluate your record. In these cases, we will usually refer more heavily to your ACT or SAT scores.

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.
