MEMS 411: Mechanical Engineering Design Project

Student groups work on an open-ended mechanical design problem and finish the semester by presenting a physical prototype and a formal report to an external review board. Groups are guided through the engineering design process by completing a set of project deliverables. This course emphasizes the importance of user-centric design, communication and presentation skill, consideration of real-world constraints, sketching and creativity, prototyping, and data-driven decision making using engineering models and analyses.
