The Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering and Engineering Technology (SPCEET) Senior Design Expo showcases the best capstone engineering design projects across the college's six departments and disciplines. Throughout the semester, students have designed, built, tested, and presented innovative projects that address real-world issues and directly impact our community.

Prizes include the top designs in various categories. Judges are members of the college's various Industry Advisory Boards (IABs), other industry partners, and faculty. 

Projects will feature teams from the following disciplines:

  • Civil and Environmental Engineering
  • Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • Engineering Technology
  • Industrial and Systems Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering
  • Plus, the Interdisciplinary Design Course

Spring 22 Senior Design Expo Information

The Event Center (Gymnasium) will be open from 8:00 AM - 7:00 PM on Monday, May 2. Please have your equipment/poster by your assigned space by 7:00 PM on May 2. Your assigned space will be provided to you via your Senior Design course instructor.

There will be a complimentary shuttle service for students every 30 minutes from 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM on May 2 to assist in the transportation of your equipment/poster. Please meet at the loading dock behind the Engineering Technology Center (Q) and you will be dropped off at the Event Center.

On May 2 and May 4, you may park in Lot P21 to load/unload your project. You may also use Lot P21 AFTER the event (3:00 PM - 7:00 PM) on May 3 to load/unload your projects. *You will NOT be allowed in the lot BEFORE 3:00 PM on May 3.

Please see the full schedule below.

About the Senior Design Experience

SPCEET's related senior design two-course capstone sequence culminates the undergraduate engineering education at KSU. Students learn and implement design concepts for products/systems from concept to market. 

What does the Senior Design Experience involve?

  • Manufacturability and Customer Requirements
  • Environmental and Human Factors
  • Maintainability
  • Marketability
  • Optimization

The senior design capstone course allows engineering students to apply the breadth of engineering coursework and analytical skillsets acquired over four years to develop an efficient and practical engineering design solution.
