Virtual Capstone Design Expo 2020

A Note from Professor Ismail Orabi, Senior Design Project Coordinator

The Design Expo is an 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 to prepare them for the workforce.


The Design Expo is the culmination of the hard work of the 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.

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 that 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.
