An engineering intramural is a problem-based engineering
activity that provides a real world learning experience for
students. We invite industry partners, community organizations and
faculty/staff/students to submit problems for consideration.
Problems can represent broad domains and result in outcomes like
requirements specification and competitive benchmarking,
brainstorming and conceptual models, proposal of design concepts
and supporting analysis, and/or design-and-build of a
Since intramurals are voluntary appointments, the following
requirements and constraints should be observed:
- Scope should be such that a team of three students spends no
more than 40-50 hours (each) on the project over a 10-week
- When appropriate, multiple student teams will work on the
problem in order to explore alternative solutions and create a
- Interaction with industry can be minimal but it is expected
that industry partners be available for a kick-off meeting, a
mid-project update, and a final presentation.
- In cases where a prototype is to be developed, the necessary
raw materials should be provided by the sponsor.
