(Updated 8/27/2016) This is my thirteenth year coaching mechanical engineering seniors in their Capstone project. Each year, as an adjunct faculty member I have been assigned to five or six students to guide them through the product development process. This has been very satisfying helping these students apply their academic skills to real projects. If you are considering engineering as a profession, or trying to choose a senior project, here are some examples. If you want to experience a team working on an entire senior project, I strongly recommend you read, “Cutting Edge,” in my book, “Engineering Stories.” You will experience the whole product development process in a one hour read.
Best Regards, Ken Hardman
