Student Design Projects Description

Students enrolled in engineering departments must complete a major design experience based on the knowledge and skills acquired in earlier course work and incorporating appropriate engineering standards and multiple realistic constraints. Most of these projects involve working with faculty and practicing engineers to solve real problems in industry. Some of these projects are competitions hosted by professional organizations. These include, for example, American Society of Civil Engineers (concrete canoe and steel bridge), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (Human Powered Vehicle Challenge, robots for relief, unmanned air vehicles), and SAE (Baja, Formula One).
