Dear ME and AE Juniors,


I hope my email finds you well and in high spirits.  The next few days we will be rolling out some important information about 2020-2021 senior design courses, specifically for

650:467/468 Design and Manufacturing I & II  for MEs, and

650:487/488 Aerospace Engineering Projects I & II for AEs.


To streamline the process, we are going to do this in stages.  Please find below the steps we will be taking.

1.     The Senior Design Questionnaire will be released to you on March 30th. Your participation in this survey is mandatory. It will take about 5mins to complete and a response is required by Sunday, April 5th, by 11:59 pm. Please find the link below:


2.     A presentation discussing the main points of senior design and the process of group formation will be sent to you by  Wednesday, April 1st, by the undergraduate office.  Please review this information.

3.     You are required to register for senior design in your corresponding AE or ME session.  Allocation of the groups will occur at a later time.

4.     I will hold three WebEx meetings for both MEs and AEs (roughly 60 students per session) to present the process and answer your questions.  Preregistration on the WebEx meeting is required to avoid overflow.  Please register by Thursday, April 2nd, in one of the sessions below: 

Friday, April 3rd 4-5 pm

Tuesday, April 7th, 4-5 pm

Thursday, April 9th, 4-5 pm
