Fall 2016 Senior Design Showcase

Come join the Senior Design Showcase on Friday, December 9th, 2016.  Student senior project demonstrations and presentations from all engineering majors will be on display throughout Riverside Hall and Santa Clara Hall.  Senior Design projects are part of credit-bearing capstone courses.  Each project culminates in an end-of-semester final presentation by a team of undergraduate students that has collaborated in an effort to conceptualize, design, and in some cases, test, build, and showcase a product.

Attendees are welcome to meet our students, learn about the students’ projects, talk to our faculty, or share your perspective and your insight about their projects.

A schedule for the Senior Design Showcase can be found here.

Lunch and refreshments will be available for invited guests.

Giving to the College of Engineering and Computer Science

Our faculty continue to deliver a high quality education to our students, while also engaging in meaningful scholarly activity. However, funding for many of the initiatives that can make our college a national model for student development is in short supply. We need that funding. Therefore, we are seeking your support to help us on the three campaign fronts shown if you follow the button to the right.
