ECS Senior Design Showcase

On Friday, May 12, 2017, the College of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS) will be hosting its Spring 2017 Senior Design Showcase.  Graduating seniors in Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering will be 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.  At the Senior Design Showcase, some groups will be giving project presentations, while some groups will be demonstrating products that they have designed and manufactured. 

This day-long event is free and open to the public.  The full Senior Design Showcase schedule with project descriptions as well as exact times and locations is available here.

As part of the showcase, there will also be an Order of the Engineer Ring Induction Ceremony at noon in the Union. Click here for more information.

Please contact the ECS Dean’s Office at if you have any questions about this event.

Hornet Hyperloop

Sacramento State is making history as one of 24 universities from around the world in the 2017 SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition II.

Billionaire engineer and inventor Elon Musk (Tesla, SolarCity) has challenged students to design and build prototype half-scale Hyperloop pods, which are high-speed “terrestrial transportation” vehicles for people and freight. Teams will race their pods in August on a mile-long test track at Musk’s SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne.

Sac State’s Hornet Hyperloop, a team of 56 engineering and business majors, began working on its design last June. The vehicle will be 13 feet long and made of aircraft-grade materials. It will travel at more than 200 mph with a life-size dummy on board.
