Thus, it is based on the fundamental principles of science and engineering. These provide a strong foundation that enables students to apply what they have learned to the complex technological problems of today and to teach themselves the new technologies of tomorrow.

ME 471 - Capstone Design II

This course is a continuation of ME470. Students continue work in teams with three to five members developing the project started in ME470. The emphasis is on detailing design solutions identified in the first quarter. In addition to regular meetings with their faculty advisors, the teams are expected to maintain close and continuous communications with their clients during the quarter. The ten week projects culminate in interim reports which are submitted to the clients. This course is intended to be taken in the quarter immediately following ME470.
