Senior Design

Senior Design is a two-semester course that ties together all the engineering, science, and humanities learnings as our students transition to the next phase of their lives. The courses focus on a project that provides a comprehensive, team-oriented design experience in which students apply their acquired knowledge and skills toward the solution of an actual problem faced by a community, agency, or corporation.

Benefits For Sponsors and Partners

Our senior engineering students can be a tremendous advantage to you and your organization. The work performed by our students enables our community partners to move from the planning and conceptual stages of a project toward detailed design and construction.

Benefits For Students

Students benefit from the opportunity to work on realistic design problems characterized by real-world constraints. To successfully complete the projects, they develop and demonstrate teamwork skills such as individual accountability, cooperation, communication, conflict resolution, and leadership. By the end of the course, students will understand a general design process, how to effectively contribute as a new employee in an industrial project, and be capable of independently designing a product of marketable value.
