Student Design Projects Description

All senior design engineering technology majors are required to take a two semester, six credit hour course sequence dealing with a team-oriented, advanced design project. These projects can be coordinated with and sponsored by local industry. The projects require a business approach to program management including Gantt charts, customer profiles, competitive market analysis, cost analysis as well as a technical approach including design and structural analysis techniques. All projects require rapid prototype modeling of the project configuration. Written team reports are required and an oral presentation, by the team, is made at the conclusion of the course. Recent projects include a kayak transportation system, a remote operated small arms mount lift system, a satellite optic mount device, and a NASA human transport vehicle.
