Use of Engineering Design Competitions for Undergraduate and Capstone Projects
Kundu, Sumit; Fowler, Michael W.
Chemical Engineering Education, v43 n2 p131-136 Spr 2009
There are many professional benefits to pursuing undergraduate design opportunities and capstone projects to both students and faculty advisors. Using a case study on a group of graduates and undergraduates who took part in the Hydrogen Ambassador Competition in 2005 this study will examine the benefits and challenges from the point of view of all major parties. The study finds that engineering design competitions have many unique benefits which warrant their use as tools in engineering undergraduate education.
