Senior Design Program

At UNC Charlotte, our mission is to graduate innovative, world-class engineers. But we can’t do it without you.

Industry partners are critical to our success and play an integral role in the development of high quality engineering graduates.

The William States Lee College of Engineering’s Senior Design Program brings together students and industrial partners in a collaborative research environment. As they tackle real-world engineering projects, the students and their industry supporters are afforded unlimited possibilities for learning and achievement. Our engineering and engineering technology students develop critical skills while working in multi-disciplinary teams tackling problems in Electrical, Computer, Mechanical, Systems and Civil engineering technologies.

Students – Our bright, energetic, and objective engineers will make your project a top priority throughout their senior year.

Teamwork – We encourage multi-disciplinary project teams with a typical team of four to six students.

Mentorship – A faculty advisor for each team provides the right balance of instruction and coaching-enabling students to learn by doing.

Resources – Students have access to state-of-the-art design and collaboration tools, multiple fabrication facilities and design labs.

Timing – Projects begin in both the fall and spring semesters. Teams devote two full semesters-approximately 250 hours per student-to their projects.

Coursework – Teams receive instructional support in relevant subject areas: project management, design principles, intellectual property, communication and meeting management.
