Senior Capstone Design Projects

Capstone design is the two-semester sequence core course required for engineering students to meet graduation requirement from an ABET accredited engineering program.  I have been teaching the Capstone Design course since Spring 2004 and have guided over 60 Capstone design teams, many with co-advisor Dr. Kendrick Aung. Each year many teams competed in national and international design competitions as in the following list. In addition, many of the teams have achieved notable awards.
