In this capstone course, students work in teams to design and develop an original solution to a valid open-ended technical problem by applying the engineering design process. After carefully defining the problem, teams design, build, and test their solutions while working closely with industry professionals who provide mentoring opportunities. Two possible projects that will be closely involved in this course are the Shell Eco-Marathon car and FIRST Robotics.
