Senior Capstone Projects

The annual Senior Engineering Design Conference showcases the mix of hands-on experience and theoretical learning that honors our mission to educate thoughtful and responsible leaders and innovators of the future. Among other things, in working on their capstone projects in recent years, our students designed affordable and sustainable building materials and techniques for earthquake-ravaged Haiti, developed a computer application to support fair trade around the world, furthered the process of LED optical wireless communication, and created an autonomous network of robotic kayaks to be used in environmental research, to name just a few.

The School of Engineering welcomes this opportunity to open our doors to alumni, parents, community partners, and friends. Please join us May 12, 2016, for the 46th Annual Senior Design Conference and witness the future of engineering.
