Senior Capstone Design | Mechanical Engineering

The Senior Capstone Design Program in Mechanical Engineering builds on our lab-based, hands-on curriculum to provide students with “their first job, ” a project supplied by companies and entrepreneurs. These clients benefit from having a student team address their dynamic goals and tight budgets, and provide a fresh perspective.

Our Senior Capstone Design teams are formed based on student background, interests, and strengths. Student teams are advised by an eight-person advisory team, the members of which are specially selected for their technical expertise and for their proven ability to guide students through solving real-world, applied problems.

The projects span two semesters, beginning with the development of a project plan, whereby students define end-user needs, client needs, design objectives and constraints, and metrics for success. Proceeding through concept generation and selection, and then through the system- and component-level design stages, each team ultimately produces a working prototype that is tested and refined to meet the project objectives. Projects commence in late August and early January.

Project Overview

Our team worked in collaboration with another Senior Design team to develop a special edition lightweight carbon fiber tailgate for use in the next generation RAM 1500 for Chrysler Group LLC. The prototype tailgate was expected to reduce current production weight by 25 percent while maintaining loading integrity and integrating a custom selling feature.

Automatic Loading and Unloading Gravity Flow Rack System

Team Members: Jeffrey Baker, Andrew Crepeau, Samantha Kallman, Clay Sekely, and Halley Shawbitz, Mechanical Engineering
Advisor: Paul van Susante, Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics
Sponsor: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles

Project Overview
We are tasked with the complete design and prototype of a mechanism that couples a material rack to an assembly rack, transfers full containers of parts from the material rack to the assembly rack, and transfers empty containers from the assembly rack to the material rack.

Which machine designing software should i learn as a mechanical engineering student? | Yahoo Answers

you are just in 4th sem, first try to get good idea in basic machine design, manufacturing processes and understand engineering drawing well.
You may do PROE/CREO courses later in 7th sem
As of now,solidworks is more user friendly and u may learn it with little or no guidance.

do mechanical engineers design electrical machines as well? | Yahoo Answers

Not sure what you mean by an Electrical Machine, but in general, i'd say almost always. Controls are an integral part of ME. Whether fluid, mechanical, pneumatic or electrical ower is used is up to the design engineer. Most every machine i've designed included motors, hydraulic cylinders and a control system to operate them.
