The Senior Project Design studio is the largest array of integrated labs and facilities in the ISE Department, and is dedicated as a “commons” area to support the Capstone Project activity. The current facilities include a computer lab with software for a variety of computer aided design and analysis packages, many of which are custom specified to meet the analytical needs of individual projects. Two 3-D printers provide rapid prototyping capability for mechanical designs. A large “dirty” lab provides ample space for miscellaneous work, including reverse engineering, disassembly of products and components, performing various experiments, building larger models and prototypes, etc. The studio provides meeting and work areas for collaboration within and between project groups that promote the brainstorming necessary to seed new ideas. The lab facilities also include ample storage capacity, access to reference materials, metrology equipment, etc. The space is designed to be flexible enough for “whatever it takes” to provide the student with the tools, equipment, inspiration, and an overall environment for success.
