An engineering intramural is a problem-based engineering activity that provides a real world learning experience for students. We invite industry partners and community organizations 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 prototype.
Students will be recruited and assigned to project teams early in the Fall semester (Sept). Students will spend several weeks elaborating on the problem proposed in the project. Students will spend this time developing a plan, building skills and knowledge related to the problem, identifying resources and experts to consult, etc. In the Spring Semester (Feb), the students will focus on completing the project outcomes, developing prototypes, running tests, etc.
Submitted project proposals will be reviewed on a continual basis but plan to submit proposals by August 15 for the upcoming academic year for launch.
Since intramurals are voluntary appointments, the following requirements and constraints should be observed:
