Senior Design Course
Senior Design is the 6-credit capstone design course (3 credits taken in the fall and 3 credits taken in the spring) structured to imitate the scenario a young engineer will experience in a design team in industry. First, teams select a project, discover customer's wants, benchmark the best practices for each desired function, generate design concepts and select the best concept. Then, teams build a prototype, test it, and improve their designs. The course provides a realistic industrial management structure and professional background for the design project activities.
