Initiate a Project
Make a lasting impact on the lives of our incredible students, and address a mechanical design challenge you are facing in an effective, affordable, and meaningful way.
The best Senior Capstone Design projects consist of mechanical design challenges - not just analysis - and are important to you, the client. This could mean a new product design, a product/component redesign, a manufacturing/process/thermal systems design, or another vital aspect that involves mechanical design.
The project should take four students each roughly 10 hours/week over the course of one semester (3.5 months) to complete. It is preferable, but not necessary, that the project involve building a prototype.
Ideal projects contain multiple constraints (need not have all): economic, regulations, manufacturability, environmental, space, health, safety, sustainability, ergonomics, cultural.
