Senior undergraduate students will have an opportunity to work on exciting capstone projects under the guidance of MAE faculty, as a part of Project Design and Management II course (MAE435). Students get to choose from a wide range of topics like formula race car design, satellite design, energy systems, biomechanics, mechanobiology, advanced materials, composites, sensors, robotics, and more.
Students quite often collaborate with students from other departments in the college as many of these projects are interdisciplinary in nature.

The capstone projects are carried out as a part of Project Design and Management II course. The course begins with conceptual design ideas that are expanded into detailed design ideas. Product realization is applied to complete hardware. Course covers Gantt charts, preliminary design, evaluation and trading matrices, detailed design and analysis, oral and technical reporting including cost analysis. Ethics and patent issues are also included.
