Senior Design Capstone

Sponsor a Senior Design Project


If your organization would like to work with Mason students on a mechanical engineering senior design project, please contact Nathan Kathir 703-993-6233.

“Engineering organizations and clubs give students an opportunity to take what they learn in the classroom and apply it to a range of activities from hands-on design projects to professional development."

— Colin Reagle, associate chair, mechanical engineering

Each year fourth-year mechanical engineering students form teams and gain real-world experience by collaborating with industry partners. These senior design capstone experiences provide valuable lessons in teamwork and unique learning opportunities for undergraduate students.

Join the event through WebEx on Tuesday, May 12, 2020.
