Sponsor a Senior Project
Senior projects mark the culmination of materials engineering students' learn by doing experience. Typically taken during Year 4, students focus on their senior projects each quarter - beginning with problem definition and literature review in the Fall; moving in to design, testing, and analysis through the Winter; and finalizing years of learning in a comprehensive report and professional presentation at the end of Spring.
We welcome sponsors to provide projects for our senior projects. This is a unique and exciting opportunity to participate in our students' education. Sponsoring a senior project enables MATEs to obtain a well-rounded experience focused on real-world engineering problems and presents your organization a new look at problems you want to solve.
If you would like to sponsor a senior project, please contact Lisa Rutherford. After receiving your proposal, a faculty member will work with you to scope your project and finalize its description.
