Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

For over 28 years, the Seattle University Project Center has offered engineering, computer science and software engineering students the opportunity to work on team projects sponsored by local companies and organizations. Taking advantage of the strategic location of the campus, the Project Center, working with the Albers School of Business and Economics, has established challenging design projects as an excellent way for students to learn real-world leadership, communication and design skills during their senior year while working on projects for industries in the area. The experience also allows sponsoring organizations to observe design team students as prospective recruits while engaging them on the completion of an engineering project. Sponsors have included Alstom, the Boeing Company, the City of Seattle, PACCAR/Kenworth, Philips Medical Systems, and Microsoft, to name a few. Previous projects include: 1) Design of a microgrid system for a 3 kW wind and solar farm, which will be used as a charging station for a rural community in Muhuru Bay, Kenya. The project’s ultimate goal is to provide community members access to electricity, which will in turn help to improve the developmental outlook of the community 2) Demonstrate leadership in sustainable practices by designing an anaerobic digester for the campus’ post-consumer, compostable waste. The implementation of an anaerobic digestion system has the potential of generating energy from waste while reducing the current carbon emissions and expenses associated with disposal. 3) Develop solutions that show potential to increase passenger safety for aircraft dividers that are rigid and not designed to absorb impact. Newly designed partition will absorb at least 100% more energy when compared to the existing partition. The team designed and built a test device that was used to gather quantifiable data for each possible candidate material.4) Design the equipment required to transform used bottles into roofing tiles. This equipment must be manually operated, easy to maintain, and capable of processing at least 5 bottles per minute. The team developed a small-scale assembly line with three individual processes. This new assembly line can be manufactured for less than $1,500 and easily used in a private home. For more information, visit http://www.seattleu.edu/project-center

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

International applicants should submit the following:
◦Completed Common Application and Seattle University Member Supplement. Transfer students may also apply via the Seattle University Transfer Application.
◦A non-refundable application fee of $55. Undergraduate applicants are only required to pay the application fee one time. The fee is considered already paid for those updating applications for subsequent quarters, or who have taken an academic hiatus and are applying for readmission. Transfer students from Washington State, Oregon, California, or Arizona who are receiving their transfer degrees and transferring directly to Seattle University will have their application fee waived.
◦Certified, official transcripts from all secondary schools and universities attended. Official external mark sheets should be submitted as part of the evaluation process in the educational system attended. Transcripts must have the official seal or stamp from the issuing institution. Students who have completed the Ordinary and/or Advanced Levels, or the International Baccalaureate must have the results sent directly from the testing agency. Transfer students who have completed more than 45 quarter hours of transferable college credit are not required to submit secondary school transcripts.

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.
