Senior Design Day highlights engineering achievements

The culmination of every engineering student’s senior year is the Senior Capstone Project. Student projects build on five years of fundamentals learned in class as well as experiential learning opportunities such as co-op, design teams, or undergraduate research. All that classroom learning gets put to real-life use as small groups work under one of our distinguished faculty members to design and build a device that solves an engineering problem.
