Student Design Projects Description

Student design projects encompass: (1) the introduction of engineering design for 1st-yr students includes a design competition with project parameters defined by industry; (2) the infusion of collaborative learning in an interdisciplinary venue through industry-sponsored, team design projects facilitated by unique facilities (Learning Factory, FAME lab and Center for Engineering Design and Entrepreneurship), in which students build prototypes for products they conceive & design; (3) vertically integrated design projects, i.e., a "sail-plane" project in Aerospace Engineering; (4) pilot plant projects in Chemical Engineering; and (5) senior capstone design projects in all disciplines.
