Senior Design: Project Proposal


The purpose of the Project Proposal is to ensure the project is appropriate, plan the achievement of all the senior design outcomes, and to detail the design approach that will be taken. This document is individual, and therefore, each senior design student is responsible for their own Project Proposal.

Advisors approve if:

  • Project is of appropriate complexity and allows for integration of information from multiple courses for discipline
  • Student’s individual role is appropriate
  • Includes the majority of phases of the design process
  • Students have developed an initial plan on how they will meet the outcomes
  • Multiple design approaches were considered, and based on evaluation, one design approach is chosen
  • Includes a detailed design of the chosen design approach.
