EGR 401 - Capstone Design


Units: 3
When Offered: Fall
The first of a two course senior capstone design sequence. Various design topics may be discussed including equipment design, the design of process systems, and economics. Student teams select a project which may involve company sponsorship, and proceed through the design methodology introduced in earlier design classes, incorporating appropriate engineering standards and multiple realistic constraints. Every project has a ‘customer’ which requires the generation of a customer spec. During the sequence students provide detailed schedules for building a prototype system or designing a process and present weekly progress reports. They also produce technical specifications, undergo a preliminary design review (PDR), and build a working prototype system if appropriate.
Grade Type: Letter Grade
Prerequisite(s): EGR 302  or 352
