Senior Design CompetitionWhen: May. 3, 2012, 7:45am - 6pm
Campus Location: Cox Pavilion
Office/Remote Location: Concourse
Join the College of Engineering as each of their students in his or her senior year chooses, plans, designs, and prototypes a product in this required element of the curriculum. The senior design project encourages the student to use everything learned in the engineering program to create a practical, real-world solution to an engineering challenge.
A highlight of the year-long senior design project is the senior design competition. This competition, which usually takes place the week before finals each semester, helps focus the senior students on increasing the quality and potential for commercial application for their design projects.
Judges from local industry evaluate the projects on innovation, commercial potential, and presentation quality, and awards are presented at an annual dinner held during the spring semester. One overall winner, winners from each discipline, and one multidisciplinary winner are chosen. Winners receive monetary awards, certificates of recognition, and a commemorative plaque.
