Senior Design is a transitional experience—preparing students for an entry level engineering position. The experience emulates industry, allowing students to apply and deploy the engineering knowledge learned over their course of study to a real-world, open-ended design challenge. Through this experience students will come to realize the complete cycle of design from conceptual design to hardware/software testing, and then repeating the cycle.
Actual hardware/software will be produced, and students will understand the difference between theory, paper, and actual materials. Students gain valuable connections and are mentored by a dedicated industry professional in addition to a biomedical engineering faculty advisor. Students will gain the professional skills necessary to succeed in industry and in life! Senior Design is perhaps the ultimate expression of engineering, and the "heart and soul" of applied science!
