The 2018 Senior Design Conference will be held on Friday, May 4, 2018 from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm in the Engineering Complex, McNeil and Gross Hall (For Campus Map Click here). The Senior Design Conference showcases student capstone projects in architectural, chemical, civil, environmental, electrical, mechanical, and natural gas engineering. It also includes projects in computer science and multidisciplinary projects. Over 230 seniors students working in 55 teams will present their work at the Conference. 

There will be 7 parallel sessions. Each session will have a moderator and staff/PhD graduate student to ensure that the presentations are on schedule. There will be several judges to evaluate the oral presentation and the technical merits of the senior design project using a standard rubric. The scores assigned by judges will be used to select the best projects for cash awards.

Due to the current budget situation, there will be no poster competition. However, if students wish to prepare a poster or demo please contact Austin McCoy at

Conference registration, the schedule, and other helpful information can be found at the links below.
