Multidisciplinary student teams unveiled their design solutions to industry challenges.

MSE fourth-year students were part of the teams that unveiled their design solutions to industry challenges at this year’s Multidisciplinary Design Projects (MCP) Showcase on April 4, 2019.

Since the launch of Multidisciplinary Design Projects in 2013, more than 550 students have benefited from the experiential and collaborative learning that the immersive design course fosters, resulting in over 120 completed projects for 64 clients.

Students are challenged to leverage their diverse engineering backgrounds to generate novel designs that address complex challenges.

Very innovative projects at this year’s final showcase!
