Course Summary ME EN 4010 is the third and final course in the Senior Design Sequence - ME EN 3910, 4000, 4010. The course is largely focused on the senior design projects and their presentation at Design Day.
Design Reviews

The design reviews are limited to 20 minutes and need to provide a brief update on the status of the project (budget and schedule) but otherwise focus on detailed, technical aspects of the project. All team members are expected to be present and answer questions in a professional and competent manner. In case of problems in the design, team members are expected to provide approaches to solve problems in their designs.

Final Presentation Final presentations are scheduled on Design Day (April 24, 207) and are limited to 20 minutes. The presentation is open to the public and needs to provide an overview of the project and highlight the achievements. All team members are required to participate.
