Pre-Capstone Degree Project (MEE401)
This course prepares senior mechanical engineering students for their capstone degree project. Topics in the engineering design process include project engineering requirements identification, project’s design concept generation and selection, engineering specifications, costs and project planning. Professional topics include studying the impacts of their engineering solutions on ethics, safety, sustainability, globalization and engineering economics. Students work in a team to develop a project topic, specifications and a project plan, perform background research necessary to fully understand the project and the problem solving approach. Students are expected to submit a proposal report and presentation.
