Work is conducted in the College’s Multidisciplinary Design Lab.
MIME Capstone Design is a 20-week course in which Oregon State mechanical, industrial, manufacturing, and energy systems engineering seniors design and implement workable solutions to real-world engineering problems.
Sponsoring a Senior Design Project at MSU begins with a problem you need solved or a challenge pertinent to your organization.
Referring to these guidelines, you will formulate a brief written project description.
Sponsors are strongly encouraged to be aware of and supportive of design details, along with their associated prototyping costs as the project progresses. In addition to covering actual expenses, we request that sponsors provide a tax-deductible donation to the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department through the MSU Foundation, Account #91752.
Donation amounts vary by sponsor and by project, about 00 per project is suggested.Sponsors are expected to be in regular communication with the student group during project execution, and should plan to participate in informal and scheduled, formal reviews of project work. Examples of direct costs would include all materials, any custom outsourced manufacturing or machining, specialty test equipment, and travel costs to your facility.A rough estimate of costs can be provided at project initiation and become clearer as designs evolve and solidify.Each Semester, a need exists for dozens of new student Capstone projects.Candidate projects can come from companies, individuals, university researchers, and other sources.The opportunity to synthesize and showcase their technical, communication, leadership, and teamwork skills readies MIME students for success as engineering professional.School of MIME Capstone Design project teams – over the course of our engineering students' senior year – develop a complete paper or conceptual solution in just ten weeks, and then work to implement test, and revise in the following ten-week term.The joint Mechanical Engineering /Mechanical Engineering Technology Capstone Experience provides senior students in the ME & MET disciplines with outstanding undergraduate research and design experiences, representative of the type of work to be encountered during their engineering careers.Capstone students face real-world challenges as they work through the numerous phases of engineering design: Project definition, background investigation, specification development, alternatives generation and evaluation, engineering analysis, computer modeling, prototype fabrication, and performance evaluation & testing.The mission of the LSU Capstone Design Program is to provide a holistic, creative, multidisciplinary design experience to the students in an educational setting wherein they function as design engineering professionals with goals, challenges and responsibilities beyond just the technical aspects of the profession.Project Submission Target Date: August 15, 2019 - Cutoff Deadline for Fall Semester: August 23, 2019.
