Senior Design is a two-semester culminating activity that brings students’ foundational and theoretical learning together in a hands-on, problem-solving effort. Student teams work with sponsoring companies to design and build projects that meet the sponsors’ needs. This real-world experience teaches communication, interdisciplinary teamwork, specifications, and design. Past semesters have included projects in agribusiness, healthcare, game hunting, recreation, rocketry, education, structural engineering, alternative energy, business systems, transportation, and entertainment.

If you would like to be a sponsor for a team (or even if you have questions), please contact one of our project coordinators.
