Students have multiple opportunities for planning and executing their own research. Faculty works closely with them during all stages of the project, but the ideas and work is their own. The research projects better prepare the students for their careers in engineering and developing their own future research.
Senior Design Projects
All computer science, computer engineering, information technology and cybersecurity, electrical engineering, and electrical and computer engineering technology students are required to complete a capstone course at the end of their degree program. They work in interdisciplinary groups to explore concepts connected to current themes in business. Presentations of the completed projects take place at the end of each semester.
