Engineering Senior Design Expo 2017

The Senior Design Expo is the opportunity for our students to showcase the results from their senior design course.

Student teams work to create a specific design solution for a “customer’s” real and unique need. Design and design education are, by their nature, experiential and collaborative, and our design team sponsors are our key collaborators. As a result of this collaboration, students bring energy and new ideas to meet the design need.

The design projects enable our students to put into practice what they have learned and prepare them for the workforce.

A Message from the Dean

Senior design projects provide a culminating experience for undergraduate students in the college. These projects play an important role in preparing our students to work in their respective professions.

This Year's Senior Design Projects


Thank You To Our Sponsors

We thank our industry sponsors who served as customers for our students as well as supporting their prototyping expenses. As customers, they gave valuable time and insights which uniquely benefited our students with an experiential design education in a real-world setting which greatly complements the team mentoring by our faculty colleagues. Their generous commitment to our students brought their design education to life.


The Design Expo is the culmination of the hard work of the 124 senior design students. We thank them for their hard work and perseverance and wish them success in their new engineering careers. We also acknowledge the faculty members who served as mentors for our students. We wish to acknowledge Dean Harichandran of the Tagliatela College of Engineering for his inspiration and commitment to the Design Expo. Finally, we acknowledge the University of New Haven. Its mission of experiential and collaborative learning is the foundation of this endeavor. For additional information or future participation, please contact:
