Students Projects

As part of graduation requirements students are required to undertake a capstone design project (Senior Design Project or Co-op in Industry) that prepares them for the engineering practice through a team‐based project that requires using the knowledge and skills acquired in earlier coursework to design, develop, implement, and/or improve a system. The teams are formed with consideration to the students’ interest, as well as their gender and academic performance.Examples of the carried out projects include:
