Student Design Projects Description

Student capstone design projects are team-based activities with teams typically consisting of 2 or 3 students. Because the EMET program has a fundamental focus on automation and automated controls, to be acceptable a student project must incorporate mechanical elements (structures, gears, mechanical manipulators, etc.), electrical elements (power sources, student-developed analog or digital circuits, etc.), instrumentation to detect environmental data, and an automation process that ties all of these elements together.
