ME 497 Senior Design Project I

Project of the student's choice is carried through from problem formulation to completion. This sequence represents the students' major design experience and is based on knowledge and skills acquired in earlier courses. Design criteria and objectives are formulated, and realistic constraints including economic, environmental, sustainability, manufacturability, ethical, health and safety, social, and political are considered. Engineering analysis and synthesis techniques are applied and iterated to obtain an optimal design solution. Students design and conduct experiments to verify design performance. Students document their achievements through oral and written presentations.
