Do you have a ‘Why Not Change the World’ idea but no way to move forward? Consider engaging a multidisciplinary Capstone student design team to assist. Deadline for submissions for the Fall 2024 semester is June 15, 2024!
The Design Showcase will be held on Wednesday, April 24th, 2024 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. in the DCC Great Hall.  Students from multiple engineering disciplines (Computer & Systems, Electrical, Industrial & Management, Materials and Mechanical Engineering) solve real-world design challenges for industry, entrepreneurs and academic/medical partners.

Congratulations to Sydney Neuman, the recipient of the inaugural David J. Duquette Capstone Prize. Sydney graduated in May with a B.S. in Materials Engineering. The award was presented to Sydney at the annual Materials Science and Engineering Dept Awards dinner on May 19. This award recognizes the outstanding performance and contributions of a Materials Engineering student on their Capstone project in the Multidisciplinary Capstone Design course. Sydney’s industry-sponsored project addressed substrate surface preparation for metal additive manufacturing.

A multidisciplinary team of Capstone Design students have successfully developed a Portable Electromagnetic Field Detection System. Their Spring’23 Capstone project, performed in collaboration with Prof. Sairam Geethanath (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai) and Professor Sandipan Mishra (a Mechanical Engineering Professor at RPI) supported their efforts towards providing quality health care by enabling deployment of MRI scanners in resource-constrained communities.

We would like to welcome Kannathal Natarajan to the Design Lab as one of our Senior Academic Support Engineers!
