In their senior year, Materials Science & Engineering students get the chance to put their education and skills to the test with their Senior Design Project, a two-semester course and project that allows for students to work with professors and industry professionals to bring their engineering ideas to life. Seniors gain first-hand experience by designing and building, reaching out to industry leaders and working in a team with other students in their course, while opening the door to job opportunities through business partnerships. Check out some of our students' work in the video below.
