  • MAE400/401 “Capstone Design I & II,” are project-based course to develop system integration skills for solving real-world problems in mechanical engineering disciplines driven by students themselves. These projects require design, analysis, implementation, documentation and demonstration, as well as design methodology, management process and teamwork. Students will employ the use of the iterative design process in order to create novel systems that address various requirements, associated goals and tasks, and expose underlying creativity.
