Students work in teams under the direction of a faculty advisor to tackle an engineering design project. Engineering communication, such as reports and oral presentations are covered. We emphasize practical, hands-on experience, and integrate analytical and design skills acquired in companion senior-level core courses.
Objectives: The program objectives are
(1) design problem solving, creative thinking, project planning and teamwork through a challenging design and build project
(2) to provide experience in fundamental engineering reporting and communication including project plans, design reviews, and project reports
