University of Arizona

For the last 5 years, TES has sponsored the Senior Capstone Experience. In this program, students are divided into teams of three to six students from several engineering departments. Each team works on a project from September to May, proceeding through requirements definition, conceptual design, detailed design and analysis, and finally to implementation and testing.

An industry mentor meets weekly with each team and each team writes a monthly status report and creates a project website with all of their documentation. Teams also conduct design reviews and write reports at key milestones. During the course of the projects, teams have access to a wide array of resources at UA including electrical benches, a machine shop, wind tunnels, computer simulation and modeling software, materials testing equipment, rapid prototyping, optical labs, and a wide range of expertise provided by UA's faculty members.

At the end of the year, teams showcase their product prototype at UA's Engineering Design Day where each project is judged and the very best receive awards. In 2010, TES sponsored team won "Best Overall Design.
