Plastics & Composites Industry Sponsored Research
Similar to the Manufacturing program, students within the Plastics & Composites program are responsible for completing a senior project upon graduation. Students are presented with numerous projects to choose from (that vary depending on the projects offered by industry). The majority of the PCE projects are: process design, process investigation, product design, machine design, software applications, material investigation, or tool design. Each project has a specific problem that needs to be solved and must contain a significant design component. Students will then define the problem, develop specifications, investigate and present multiple solutions, select the best solution and develop an implementation plan including timeline and budget. During this time, all projects start in the Fall and are implemented in the Spring.
