Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Students are introduced to engineering design, innovation, and entrepreneurship in the freshman year. Sophomore, junior, and senior courses provide progressively more sophisticated design experiences within the student's discipline. Design projects are integrated throughout the curriculum. These projects are an integral component of many engineering courses beginning with the first year design course & culminating in the Senior Design Project. All students complete a Senior Design Project under the direction of a full-time faculty advisor. Over half of the projects are supplied by industry; these projects are co-advised by a company representative and faculty member. Some students participate in national design competitions and present papers at regional and national conferences.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The College of Engineering offers personalized laboratory/project intensive programs. Undergraduate students may pursue a degree full-time or part-time. The College is committed to excellence in undergraduate teaching. As a result, all classes are small. Masters programs are offered for working professionals who are studying part-time, as well as for those that wish full-time study. Online course options are offered in several MS programs. Several options/sequences are available within the undergraduate programs. Mechatronics, Environmental Engineering, Reservoir Engineering, Railway Engineering, as well as, several specialized course sequences such as pre-med, cell & tissue, entrepreneurial, biomaterials, instrumentation etc. A Ph.D. in Engineering Management is also available.

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.
