Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Project-Based Learning

By providing project-based learning, we ensure our graduates are well prepared for success in their careers. Our students are mastering their academic studies in Engineering and Technology and in Construction Management; they are actively involved in using what they are learning. By tackling real projects drawn from industry, they are acquiring hands-on experience in team work, problem solving, goal setting, conflict resolution, deadline management, effective planning, and other critical skills. They graduate with theoretical and practical knowledge as well as actual proof that they can use their knowledge to accomplish results.
As part of the Kimmel School's focus on project-based learning, students are required to participate in a two-semester senior capstone project. You will work on a challenge proposed by a project sponsor who has been invited by the Center for Rapid Product Realization, an EDA-designated university center, to submit "real-world" problems that are open-ended, complex, require innovation and self-directed learning and are of sufficient scope to require a team approach.

These are not just sample problems with back-of-the book, predictable answers but challenges that give you the opportunity to apply the engineering fundamentals you are studying and to learn even more with a hands-on experience.

Working with your course instructor, faculty mentor and mentor selected by the project sponsor, you and your team will use a multidisciplinary approach â€" including electrical engineering, electrical and computer engineering technology and engineering technology. To simulate a real work environment, you will use a stage/gate process, progressing from a project proposal to a minimum of three conceptual designs; continuing to a preliminary design review, a critical design review, and fabrication and testing of a prototype or proof of concept; and finishing with a wrap-up of documentation, test results and modifications, if needed, to result any issues revealed through testing. A mentor selected by the project sponsor will be available to discuss your progress and review the results you have achieved at the end of the year.

You will gain valuable experience by working on a "real" project; analyzing and solving engineering problems; learning teamwork and presentation skills; setting goals, specifying deliverables and meeting deadlines; testing and modifying your work; and achieving measurable results. That proof that you can actually use what you are learning will give you a distinct advantage as you launch your career or apply for graduate school.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The College of Engineering and Technology is home to the Kimmel School of Construction Management, the School of Engineering + Technology and the Center for Rapid Product Realization.

The School is focused on two equally important and interlocking goals :

Academic programs enhanced by project-based learning to prepare our students for success in their careers.

Faculty engagement in productive partnerships with business and industry for economic development.

Project-Based Learning

First, by providing project-based learning, we ensure that our graduates are well prepared for success in their careers. Our students are mastering their academic studies in Engineering and Technology and in Construction Management; they are actively involved in using what they are learning. By tackling real projects drawn from industry, they are acquiring hands-on experience in team work, problem solving, goal setting, conflict resolution, deadline management, effective planning, and other critical skills. They graduate with theoretical and practical knowledge as well as actual proof that they can use their knowledge to accomplish results.

Productive Partnerships

Second, we offer expertise and technical resources to business across the region. Through the Center for Rapid Product Realization (the Rapid Center), we provide product-development services and business counseling to inventors and entrepreneurs, start-ups and established companies. With a full range of professional software and equipment all in one place, our faculty and staff help business partners refine their existing products, develop new ones and improve business processes. At the same time, we invite project sponsors to pose challenging problems for students and to mentor their progress in working on innovative solutions. The combined success of our partners and sponsors contributes to economic development throughout the Southeast.

- Competitive SAT I or ACT scores:

First-year applicants (including early college applicants and other high school students with dual enrollment or advanced standing credits) must submit either the SAT I (which includes the writing component) or the ACT with the writing component.

Applicants are encouraged to take the same type of test at least twice (once in the spring of the junior year and once in the fall of the senior year) and may consider taking both the SAT I and ACT based upon score results.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Admission to Western Carolina University is admission to the engineering department.

Residency Requirements

Undergraduates who have attempted college courses in a regular term after completion of high school and who have earned less than 30 hours of transferrable credit to WCU prior to their initial term of enrollment at WCU are subject to a one academic year (two fall or spring semesters) requirement to live in the residence halls.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Competitive high school coursework or its equivalent:

You must document that you have fulfilled the high school Minimum Course Requirements (MCR) as established by the UNC Board of Governors unless you meet one of the following conditions:

- You are at least 24 years old
- You have earned an associate of arts, associate of science, associate of fine arts or bachelor’s degree
- You have completed the 44-hour general education core at a North Carolina community college
- You have earned credit for at least six semester hours of courses with grades of C or better in each of the following areas: English, mathematics, science, social science and foreign language
- Whether transfer applicants attended public, private or home school; North Carolina or out-of-state high school; or high school equivalency programs, they must have earned a high school diploma or its equivalent and have satisfied the Minimum Course Requirements (or qualify for an exemption) as established by the UNC Board of Governors:

- Four units of English
- Two units of social studies (one in U.S. history)
- Four units of mathematics (algebra I, algebra II, geometry and an advanced unit of mathematics beyond algebra II)
- Three units of science (life science, physical science and a laboratory course)
- Two units of one language other than English

Competitive college performance:

The more credits you earn and the higher your collegiate GPA, the greater likelihood you have of gaining admission to the university.
Completion of a college degree or other recognized body of work such as the 44-hour general education core at a North Carolina community college strengthens an applicant’s record (and may benefit the student in terms of credit policies).

Performance in college courses taken in early or middle college or other high school dual-enrollment courses can affect an admission decision because all undergraduate college work attempted factors into your cumulative higher education GPA.

Good academic and social standing, eligibility to continue at or return to your most recent institution attended, performance in most recent work, and the length of time since college work has been attempted are examples of other factors that weigh into an admission decision.

The cumulative GPA as listed on each college transcript will be the primary GPA used to calculate your higher education GPA. Because colleges vary in repeat policies, grading systems, whether developmental course grades are included within the GPA calculation, etc., such differences will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

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.

Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Project-Based Learning

By providing project-based learning, we ensure our graduates are well prepared for success in their careers. Our students are mastering their academic studies in Engineering and Technology and in Construction Management; they are actively involved in using what they are learning. By tackling real projects drawn from industry, they are acquiring hands-on experience in team work, problem solving, goal setting, conflict resolution, deadline management, effective planning, and other critical skills. They graduate with theoretical and practical knowledge as well as actual proof that they can use their knowledge to accomplish results.
As part of the Kimmel School's focus on project-based learning, students are required to participate in a two-semester senior capstone project. You will work on a challenge proposed by a project sponsor who has been invited by the Center for Rapid Product Realization, an EDA-designated university center, to submit "real-world" problems that are open-ended, complex, require innovation and self-directed learning and are of sufficient scope to require a team approach.

These are not just sample problems with back-of-the book, predictable answers but challenges that give you the opportunity to apply the engineering fundamentals you are studying and to learn even more with a hands-on experience.

Working with your course instructor, faculty mentor and mentor selected by the project sponsor, you and your team will use a multidisciplinary approach â€" including electrical engineering, electrical and computer engineering technology and engineering technology. To simulate a real work environment, you will use a stage/gate process, progressing from a project proposal to a minimum of three conceptual designs; continuing to a preliminary design review, a critical design review, and fabrication and testing of a prototype or proof of concept; and finishing with a wrap-up of documentation, test results and modifications, if needed, to result any issues revealed through testing. A mentor selected by the project sponsor will be available to discuss your progress and review the results you have achieved at the end of the year.

You will gain valuable experience by working on a "real" project; analyzing and solving engineering problems; learning teamwork and presentation skills; setting goals, specifying deliverables and meeting deadlines; testing and modifying your work; and achieving measurable results. That proof that you can actually use what you are learning will give you a distinct advantage as you launch your career or apply for graduate school.

College Description

Engineering Technology College Description and Special Characteristics

The College of Engineering and Technology is home to the Kimmel School of Construction Management, the School of Engineering + Technology, and the Center for Rapid Product Realization.

The School is focused on two equally important and interlocking goals :

Academic programs enhanced by project-based learning to prepare our students for success in their careers.
Faculty engagement in productive partnerships with business and industry for economic development.

Project-Based Learning

First, by providing project-based learning, we ensure that our graduates are well prepared for success in their careers. Our students are mastering their academic studies in Engineering and Technology and in Construction Management; they are actively involved in using what they are learning. By tackling real projects drawn from industry, they are acquiring hands-on experience in team work, problem solving, goal setting, conflict resolution, deadline management, effective planning, and other critical skills. They graduate with theoretical and practical knowledge as well as actual proof that they can use their knowledge to accomplish results.

Productive Partnerships

Second, we offer expertise and technical resources to business across the region. Through the Center for Rapid Product Realization (the Rapid Center), we provide product-development services and business counseling to inventors and entrepreneurs, start-ups and established companies. With a full range of professional software and equipment all in one place, our faculty and staff help business partners refine their existing products, develop new ones and improve business processes. At the same time, we invite project sponsors to pose challenging problems for students and to mentor their progress in working on innovative solutions. The combined success of our partners and sponsors contributes to economic development throughout the Southeast.

Admissions/Transfers

Admission to Engineering Technology College

Competitive coursework:

Whether first-year applicants are enrolled in public, private or home school; North Carolina or out-of-state school systems; or high school equivalency programs, they must earn a high school diploma or its equivalent and satisfy the Minimum Course Requirements (MCR) as established by the UNC Board of Governors:

- Four units of English
- Two units of social studies (one in U.S. history)
- Four units of mathematics (algebra I, algebra II, geometry and an advanced unit of mathematics beyond algebra II)
- Three units of science (life science, physical science and a laboratory course)
- Two units of one language other than English

Competitive grades and class rank (if applicable):

WCU assesses the academic performance in the classroom of first-year applicants using as much information as is available, including:

- Weighted and unweighted GPA
- Grades in core subjects
- Grades as compared with classmates at your school (i.e., class rank and class profile information)
- Most recent grades
-Performance in honors, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or other competitive high school courses
- Performance in early or middle college courses or other college dual-enrollment courses (Note: College transcripts should be sent at the time of application for any coursework already completed, and a final official transcript for all coursework attempted is required.)
- Competitive SAT I or ACT scores:

First-year applicants (including early college applicants and other high school students with dual enrollment or advanced standing credits) must submit either the SAT I (which includes the writing component) or the ACT with the writing component.

Applicants are encouraged to take the same type of test at least twice (once in the spring of the junior year and once in the fall of the senior year) and may consider taking both the SAT I and ACT based upon score results.

Admission to an Engineering Technology Department

Admission to College is admission to ET Department.

Residency Requirements

Undergraduates who have attempted college courses in a regular term after completion of high school and who have earned less than 30 hours of transferrable credit to WCU prior to their initial term of enrollment at WCU are subject to a one academic year (two fall or spring semesters) requirement to live in the residence halls.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Competitive high school coursework or its equivalent:

You must document that you have fulfilled the high school Minimum Course Requirements (MCR) as established by the UNC Board of Governors unless you meet one of the following conditions:

- You are at least 24 years old
- You have earned an associate of arts, associate of science, associate of fine arts or bachelor’s degree
- You have completed the 44-hour general education core at a North Carolina community college
- You have earned credit for at least six semester hours of courses with grades of C or better in each of the following areas: English, mathematics, science, social science and foreign language
- Whether transfer applicants attended public, private or home school; North Carolina or out-of-state high school; or high school equivalency programs, they must have earned a high school diploma or its equivalent and have satisfied the Minimum Course Requirements (or qualify for an exemption) as established by the UNC Board of Governors:

- Four units of English
- Two units of social studies (one in U.S. history)
- Four units of mathematics (algebra I, algebra II, geometry and an advanced unit of mathematics beyond algebra II)
- Three units of science (life science, physical science and a laboratory course)
- Two units of one language other than English

Competitive college performance:

The more credits you earn and the higher your collegiate GPA, the greater likelihood you have of gaining admission to the university.
Completion of a college degree or other recognized body of work such as the 44-hour general education core at a North Carolina community college strengthens an applicant’s record (and may benefit the student in terms of credit policies).

Performance in college courses taken in early or middle college or other high school dual-enrollment courses can affect an admission decision because all undergraduate college work attempted factors into your cumulative higher education GPA.

Good academic and social standing, eligibility to continue at or return to your most recent institution attended, performance in most recent work, and the length of time since college work has been attempted are examples of other factors that weigh into an admission decision.

The cumulative GPA as listed on each college transcript will be the primary GPA used to calculate your higher education GPA. Because colleges vary in repeat policies, grading systems, whether developmental course grades are included within the GPA calculation, etc., such differences will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
