Project Assignments

Capstone Senior Design students will be assigned to a project and project team early during the fall semester. Project assignments are based on:

  • Project needs and preferences of project sponsors
  • Faculty recommendations and assessment of student skills
  • Student interests and project rankings

Although the College of Engineering strives to match students to projects they are most interested in, there is no guarantee that a student can be assigned to a particular project or project group.

Current Capstone Senior Design students must rank their project preferences by completing the online 2018-2019 Senior Design Project survey. Surveys must be submitted by Wednesday, August 22 by 11:59 p.m.
