Student Design Projects Description

Instruction in the design process begins in the required three-class design sequence. The first class is in introductory class with an emphasis on the field of engineering and mechanical systems. The second class emphasizes electrical engineering and embedded systems. The third semester focuses on user-oriented design. Students in each of the USD Engineering programs have a required capstone design project. The capstone project is two semesters long for electrical engineering, general engineering, and mechanical engineering students and one semester for industrical & systems engineering students. Each semester, these projects are presented to the public at showcase events in fall, and spring and they are all profiled annually in our publication, USD Engineering Insights, that is available at our webpage.
