Senior Design Showcase

This year more than 125 teams of engineering students from all eight of our departments explained how they took real world challenges from their clients and as a team came up with creative, innovative, and practical solutions at the Senior Design Showcase.

Senior design—also known as capstone design—is the final educational element that ties to together all the engineering, science, and humanities learnings as our students transition to the next phase of their lives. This event is an opportunity for our students, faculty, sponsors, and guests to come together to celebrate the completion of the open-ended projects our students have worked on during the past two semesters.

Having the students display their projects and present them publicly to guests sets a higher standard for their completed work while enhancing their interpersonal skills— helping to kick-start their engineering careers upon graduation. The showcase also gives our up-and-coming students an aspirational perspective for their senior year.

Most importantly, the showcase is a fun and memorable experience for all participants to enjoy. We encourage you to talk to our students about their projects and hope you will leave inspired by their creativity and hard work.

Check out what people said about the showcase on social media.
