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.
