Campus-Based Global Courses
Capstone Design Experience
All seniors are required to take a capstone design course that applies engineering knowledge to a hands-on, company-sponsored project. To give our graduates the opportunity to collaborate with team members across the globe, the Department has partnered with several overseas universities. One section of the Capstone Design course is dedicated to these cross-cultural teams.
ME 440W and ME 441W: Mechanical Systems Design Project
You have the option of partnering with students from China's Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the National University of Singapore, Seoul National University, or South Korea's Chonnam University.
NucE 431W: Nuclear Reactor Core Design Synthesis
A partnership with Shanghai Jiao Tong University allows you to partner with Chinese nuclear engineering students in this course.
