Spring 2013 Senior Design Competition Projects Announced

In their final year of engineering curriculum, undergraduate students in the College of Engineering and Applied Science take a Senior Design class that gives the student an important design experience that is the culmination of the knowledge and skills they have learned up to this point. It is the first time in the curriculum that engineering students formally learn about such things as solving a problem for someone else, design tradeoffs, cost and budgeting, documentation of process and product, scheduling tasks with lead time, and experiencing all sorts of human factors involved in teamwork. Each semester the college holds a competition where industry judges select top projects and teams for recognition.

Many of the following projects participated with a first draft of their project in the Fall, and are competing again with a more complete version of their Fall projects.  The spring 2013​​ competition will take place on May 17 in the North Classroom Atrium on the Auraria Campus. Projects will be judged between 8:30 and 11:30 a.m.; the winners will be announced around 1 p.m.

Use the following links for a PDF abstract of each project and a list of team members involved.
