Senior Design

As part of your bachelor's degree program, you'll work on a senior design project. These team projects involve creating or improving commercial products or industrial processes. To complete your project, you'll use your classroom knowledge to integrate concepts, apply theories, and construct a prototype or process.

Along the way, you'll be mentored by faculty and industry professionals. You'll present your project at our Senior Design Day event. This hands-on, real-world experience is sure to be a high point of your education.

Clients and Sponsors

The senior design program is made possible by our clients and sponsors, who present our student teams with challenges faced by their organizations. Our students are learning the latest theories and technologies. They'll bring an innovative approach to the creation or improvement of your product, system or process.
