UT Arlington students graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering are required to complete a design capstone course which spans their final two semesters of study. This course emulates a real-world, team-based design experience to prepare students for full-time engineering work—involving a combination of analysis, simulation, and prototyping activities.
If you would like to have access to the skills of a dedicated mechanical engineering team, we invite you to join our Senior Design Partners program (ME-SDP). We seek and welcome participation from all interested entities—industrial, commercial, research, non-profit—in contributing and supporting relevant, real-life engineering problems for our student teams to undertake as a Senior Design Project.
Senior Design is one of the most memorable and significant learning experiences for our students, while Partners benefit in ways that reach far beyond the team’s technical output. We have created this website to familiarize you with our program and answer the most common questions, but we always look forward to discussing your specific project ideas. Email or call us any time!
