Course: MME448 & 449 Senior Design Capstone
Introduction: Miami University's MME department is looking to develop business partnerships to conduct design or manufacturing improvement projects that will benefit the business and provide valuable educational experience to the students involved. These projects are selected by the business and then executed by a team of engineering students who are assigned by the course instructor to the project. The business would then assign a point of contact within the business to assist the student project team with project goals, requirements, and other necessary information. The project duration is 9 months (2 semesters), culminating with a working design prototype, design drawing package, and manufacturing plan.
The gates for MME448/449 will follow the design process.
