Student Design Projects Description

Each Engineering major requires a certain number of design units for the major. In addition, Computer Engineering, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering each require a two-semester senior design project. Students must work on and complete a project from start to finish, including submitting a project plan, doing the actual shop and/or lab work to complete the project, and submitting a final report.

Also available are extra-curricular design projects such as the high mileage vehicle, mini-Baja car, human-powered vehicle, and the concrete canoe, all of which are completed by members of student organizations. These vehicles are also all entered in the local, regional and national competitons available for them. They are primarily supported by student fund-raising and industry sponsors.
