Senior Design at the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at is the pinnacle of engineering education at NC State. Each year, our seniors participate in their respective Senior Design Courses, in which students design, manufacture and build a variety of senior design projects. 
The course is split into a Mechanical Engineering Senior Design Course and an Aerospace Engineering Senior Design Course, both of which task students with specific issues they must solve by designing and building a prototype of a product or device that could aid in a variety of different applications.
