MET 482, Senior Design Project

Department of Mechanical Engineering

College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture


Over the last 3 years, a number of companies have gotten results they can use from the MET 482 Senior Design Course: new product designs, redesigns of existing products, and recommendations for improving systems, including production processes, quality control, inventory management, scheduling systems, and many other aspects of the design, manufacturing, and delivery of products or services. Many sponsoring companies address issues that may be sitting on the back burner due to lack of time, personnel or the consultancy costs. Consider becoming involved today!
