I E 480W Capstone Design Project (3)

Students will develop "real world" engineering project experience through an industry-based project. Projects will focus on manufacturing systems, service systems, and/or information systems. Students will work in teams to complete the projects, where the teams will be interdisciplinary and composed of students from within the major with different areas of expertise and students from other majors as needed. Students interested in taking this course should have senior standing and be familiar with basic principles in manufacturing, operations research, and human factors engineering. Students will be evaluated through in-class participation, and a group project that consists of weekly communication with the project sponsor along with three design reviews, interim written reports and a final report, presentation and poster.

This is a Writing-Intensive course in the department and hence students will be given opportunities to practice writing throughout the semester in multiple writing assignments.
