Multidisciplinary Engineering @ RIT -- Senior Design Program
The Kate Gleason College of Engineering at RIT fully embraces the goal of providing a comprehensive team-based multidisciplinary design experience for all senior engineering students. All graduating seniors from Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering participate in the MSD program, along with some students from Computer Engineering. Past teams have also included students from Industrial Design, Business, and Software Engineering. During 2015-16, we will have nearly 350 students on almost 70 teams finish their projects, most of them during the spring semester, where they will exhibit their work at ImagineRIT.
Student ProjectsSome of our recent award-winning project teams are:
- Robofish - 1st place in the 2014 ASME Student Mechanism and Robot Design Competition
- Adapted Jib Trimmer Transfer Bench - Finalists in the 2014 World Congress of Biomechanics Undergraduate Design Competition
- Underwater Robotic Manipulator - Winner of the 2014 ImagineRIT Xerox Gold Sponsor Award
- Active Ankle Foot Orthotic - 2nd place finish in the 2015 Summer Biomechanics, Bioengineering, and Biotransport Conference Undergraduate Design Competition
