Please join us for the 27th Annual Projects Day on Friday, June 6, 2014 at Sullivan Hall on the Seattle University campus.
Thirty-one senior design project teams will give their final presentations in the following areas: Civil & Environmental Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science & Software Engineering. In addition, Masters of Business Administration (MBA) project teams from the Albers School of Business and Economics will present projects in the areas of New Ventures, Sustainability and International Business.
After the presentation sessions, each team will present their design materials, prototypes and final products at a poster board session. The day will conclude with a reception.

When & Where
Seattle University Project Center
Established in 1987 as one of the first in the nation, the Seattle University Project Center partners with businesses, government agencies and nonprofit organizations to bring challenging engineering design projects to our senior-level students. Over the course of the academic year, teams from the College of Science and Engineering work on industry-led projects in the fields of civil and environmental engineering, computer science and software engineering, electrical and computer engineering, environmental science and mechanical engineering. Applying theory to real life and producing real outcomes underscore the work of our student teams. Student teams, with the guidance of faculty, often work more than 1,000 hours toward completing an engineering project throughout an entire school year.
The student teams are responsible for project management, scheduling and budgeting – plus design and delivery of a prototype, softwar application or proof of concept. Each team dedicates nine months and over 1,000 hours of work to the project. The students consult with their industry liaison weekly and present quarterly status updates in person. The students gain valuable real-world experience in their fields and hone the project management and communication skills that place them ahead of their peers. Projects Day is the culminating event for the students, and it is our opportunity to thank the Project Center sponsors and faculty advisors.
