Senior Design Day

17-ceet-senior_design_day-0505-wd-050_1200x420

Each semester, as a senior-level student, you will form teams and compete in the college-wide senior design competition. This capstone competition is an opportunity for you to apply your knowledge from the classroom to real-world applications of product design, system solution or process improvement.

Many projects address specific requests from local business or industry and all projects are judged by faculty and representatives from our corporate partners. Winning teams are chosen by faculty representatives from each department and the overall winner is chosen by the Engineering and Technology Alumni Society.

All students, parents, friends, staff and faculty are invited to view presentations, eat lunch and celebrate the completion of your undergraduate career.
