Senior Design Showcases Hands-On Community Engagement

The CE400 capstone Senior Design course provides a comprehensive, team-oriented design experience in which students apply their acquired knowledge and skills toward the solution of an actual problem faced by a local community.

The projects often incorporate the knowledge base of students across different focus areas within the CEE department and require students to find solutions to real-world problems facing communities that have higher stakes than in the classroom.

The Spring 2018 class wrapped up the semester by showcasing the results of their projects that ranged from renovating an old railroad bed into public recreation space to fixing drainage issues on roadways. Best overall went to the team that did a proposal for expanding the Greenway in the City of Maryville. Congratulations to all nine teams for excellent work!
