Seniors in the Software Engineering Program have the opportunity to complete a Senior Design capstone course, providing them with valuable real-world experience that supports their transition into industry.
Real-world application is at the center of the Senior Design Program. Working in cross-disciplinary teams of up to four students, those who choose to complete the Senior Design capstone course either develop an innovative design that they conceptualize and guide to completion or take on an existing company- or faculty-sponsored project. Senior Design projects address a range of contemporary challenges, proposing modern solutions to issues across industries.
Design teams present their work at the Annual Innovation Expo, where the three most noteworthy projects are recognized via first, second and third-place distinction in the Ansary Entrepreneurship Competition.
In 2018, a team of software engineering and engineering management students took first place in the competition for their groundbreaking work on OrthoInsight, a first-of-its-kind sensor-enabled "smart" implant for knee joints that provides real-time information about the internal conditions of the joint prosthetic.
