Virtual Senior Design Showcase

The Spring 2021 Virtual Senior Design Showcase will take place on Friday, May 14th. Senior Design project pages, information, and links will be forthcoming closer to the event.

The Senior Design Showcase takes place every semester, and is an event where graduating seniors in Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Construction Management, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering present the highlights of their senior design projects.

All students work collaboratively in small groups. Some student groups have worked collaboratively with individuals, private companies, or public agencies as clients, while other student groups have developed and designed their own innovative projects. Some groups will be giving project presentations, while some groups will be demonstrating products that they have designed and manufactured. In this virtual format, some presentations will be live while some will be recorded.

Check here for more information with links and times when they become available.

Civil Engineering - CE 191

Student teams perform preliminary engineering design of a civil engineering system. Students are required to adhere to realistic constraints, and practicing professional engineers work with the student teams to provide.
