Student Design Projects Description

Students in each engineering program are required to complete a year-long design project. Many of these projects are industrially sponsored practical problems. Participation is encouraged in interdisciplinary design projects such as the Sunseeker solar car, concrete canoe, the Stryker Challenge, hydraulic bike, and the SAE Mini-Baja/Formula competitions. Each department administers its own capstone design projects with college-wide final presentations in a conference-style format open to the public.
