Senior Design Projects List
Students in the CE department are required to successfully complete a senior design project in the final semester of their undergraduate studies in order to graduate. Each senior project is executed by a group of up to four students. Students can either choose a project from the published list of senior design projects by senior design project coordinators or submit their own projects to the coordinators for an official approval. A faculty advisor will be assigned to each design project to supervise and guide the project throughout its duration. The major stages of the senior design projects are: identifying, proposing, executing (designing and/or analyzing), reporting, and presenting project. Students are required to present project proposal, project progress work, and final project in front of examining committee and general audience attended by faculty, students, and invited local engineers.

At PMU CE Department, the senior design project is recognized as ASSE 4311 Learning Outcome Assessment III course and must be taken by the final semester’s students. Every semester the department forms a senior design project committee which comprises of advisors (supervisors) and examining committees that follows a clearly defined process for reviewing project ideas, forming project teams, approving project proposals, evaluating and assessing project performance. Once the proposal is approved, students start their project work. Because it is practiced in one semester, some of the project ideas are initiated a semester earlier after consultation with potential advisors who teach design based courses. Progress of the project is tracked through weekly meetings and bi-weekly status/progress report. At the end of the project students are required to make oral presentation that will be evaluated by examining committee.

The following is a list of project topics including their detail information (final report and presentation links):
