Senior Design Projects

Last Chance To Show Off

Students take what they learned in the classroom and apply it to a real industry problem in a Senior Design Project that caps off their engineering education. Our Senior Projects are a full year long. Students spend the first semester learning about the product research, innovation, and development process, as applicable to their project. The second semester is then used to execute the project itself. Many companies sponsor and guide students through the completion of their projects, which also allows them to leverage the opportunity into full-time jobs after graduation. Recent examples of Senior Design Projects are a Guided Airfoil Recovery System that uses a rocket to shoot up a payload and a steerable parafoil to steer the payload to land in a predesignated location using GPS and a controller utilizing servos; a portable device that produces musical sounds without a large synthesizer; and a design for improved medical laser cutting.
