Every year, senior engineering students participate in a two-semester Senior Design course, where they apply the knowledge learned in the classroom and work with industry partners on a sponsored project. These undergraduates work in teams, often interdisciplinary to provide innovative and creative solutions for real-life projects. Senior Design is a signature engineering capstone experience for students and the experience helps them realize specific design needs by using engineering skills they have learned through curriculum.
Due to current unfortunate circumstances (COVID-19)...Engineering Design Day & Engineering Shark Tank 2020 has been cancelled!
The tragedy left behind by Hurricane Michael will not be forgotten in Tallahassee and the Florida panhandle. This year, we decided to start the campaign #EngineeringServes with resilience against natural disasters in mind. We want to promote the creation of projects that have a purpose, can help people--but most importantly bridge the gap between the students and the community.
Industry Partners and Sponsorship
At the beginning of each academic year, senior students rank their top project interests. Teams are then determined based on the student choices and instructor input. For consideration by students, projects for the upcoming year should be submitted by May.
We appreciate your interest in supporting FAMU-FSU Engineering senior design. Alumni, friends and corporations who sponsor senior design projects are vital to the success of our students. Whether you need some independent research and analysis or a fresh perspective, our students are up for the task.
For more information on sponsorship and project implementation, please contact Dr. Shayne McConomy at (850) 410-6624 or firstname.lastname@example.org
