Section Description

This is the second semester of a two semester course and is being offered to give graduate students an opportunity to participate in a creative design project course that is of a competitive nature. In the first semester (2 credit hours ) small student teams of 3 - 5 persons will design a device to meet the specified technical requirements of the competition and provide an engineering analysis that shows that their design is likely to be successful. The device will be fabricated in the second semester (2 credit hours). The Fall 2017 project was to build a walking machine that is powered by a cordless drill that carries a human rider. A competition consisting of racing around the Engineering Quad will be held at the end of the second semester in the spring of 2021. This course has no lectures or exams, grades are based solely on the project.
