Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Each student is required to complete a Senior Project. This design project is selected by the student in consultation with a project adviser and typically will require 100 to 150 hours to complete. Some projects result in the design and construction of an end product while others consist of the design only. The student chapters of the professional societies enter the regional student paper design competitions.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Since its founding in 1947, the goal of the Edward F. Cross School of Engineering has been to provide students with the highest quality engineering education with the best possible adjunct, a Christian ethic. Our program is affiliated with a network of sister colleges which provide transfer students at the sophomore and junior years. The Chan Shun Pavilion, a 30,000 sq. ft. addition to Kretschmar Hall, completed in 1998, provides new civil and electrical engineering laboratories, classrooms, and faculty offices. Mechanical Engineering Laboratories occupy 6,000 sq. ft. in Kretschmar Hall.
