For students in the School of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering, the senior project represents the crowning achievement of years of determination, work, and study. It also provides those who are about to graduate an opportunity to demonstrate to their mentors, peers, and community just how much they’ve learned.
These projects — undertaken with the supervision of either a faculty mentor or one of the school’s industry partners — require students to tackle real-world challenges using their hard-earned engineering skills and creative problem-solving abilities.
Administered by Philip Harding, Linus Pauling Engineer, the CBEE senior projects are formulated in the fall and assigned in late January. Work begins in mid-February. A listing of this year’s senior projects is now online. (Check back throughout the spring term for links to the teams’ most recent presentations, along with projects from previous years.)
The senior projects culminate in the College of Engineering’s Engineering Undergraduate Expo and final presentations in mid-June.
Each year, the Expo offers an amazing breadth of engineering talent and ingenuity, featuring projects by seniors throughout the College of Engineering. The 2018 event will take place on Friday, May 18, in the Kelley Engineering Center, Johnson Hall and Community Plaza.
