Senior Design uniquely prepares students for engineering careers

12-5-16 As the date for Senior Design presentations approaches, Dr. Czarena Crofcheck, who has taught the course for ten years, took a moment to reflect on the nature of the course as it has developed over the past decade. BAE 402/403 is a two-semester capstone for biosystems engineering students, and it provides an opportunity for students to have a significant engineering design experience. The first semester is devoted to a thorough examination of the problem, the second to developing and building a final product, whether model-size or a prototype.
