Our students participate in various projects throughout the year. This year's projects include mobile robots made from LEGO Mindstorm components, automated filling devices, pasta bridges, a racecar and a robot.
As an engineering major you are required to complete a number of engineering design projects as members of a design team. Engineering design projects begin in the freshman year as part of the EPADS I and EPADS II courses and finish in the junior/senior year as part of Capstone Design I and Capstone Design II courses.
Projects include creative conception, design, fabrication, testing, and performance of a physical system or component. Written reports and oral presentations are generally required, the latter being made before a group of faculty, students, project sponsors, parents, and visiting evaluators from local industry.
As a computer science senior you will be part of a project working on your Senior Software Project I. Each team will complete a substantial project provided by sponsors drawn from both industry and research organizations.
Senior Software Design II is a continuation of Senior Software Project I provided the project is considered to be large enough to warrant two full semesters of project activity.
