Projects at the Design Lab
The Design Lab continually seeks projects that accomplish two goals:
- To engage engineering students in open-ended, technically challenging, real-world design projects that are important to sponsors and partners.
- To provide a valuable return on investment in ideas, innovations, and potential employees to our sponsors and partners.
As we approach the end of our second decade, we have built up a broad base of project experience and past work.The projects shown here represent only a small sampling of the hundreds of projects that our students have delivered.
