Design Day Letter

We are proud of our students for their diligence and dedication throughout the school year. Read a letter from our interim dean regarding the grand presentations that our seniors showcased April 30 at Design Day 2018.

Welcome to Engineering Design Day 2018!

This is the best day of the academic year! Today, our engineering students will showcase two semesters of design and development of solutions to technical and societal problems that will improve our quality of life. The capstone design experience in the University of Arizona Engineering Design Program integrates multidisciplinary teams of seniors with real project needs that are identified and sponsored by our industry partners, faculty and student clubs.

This year we have almost 600 students from virtually every degree program offered by the College of Engineering demonstrating 114 projects, some of which will go on to be commercial products. This capstone experience and event are only possible due to the generous support of our industry sponsors, faculty, student clubs, mentors, coordinators, judges and staff. Together we are witnessing the development and growth of the engineers and leaders of tomorrow.

Our engineering students have worked hard to be ready for this spectacular demonstration, so please enjoy the day and ask the design teams about their projects. University of Arizona engineers are enthusiastic about their work and appreciate opportunities to explain how they intend to help change the world for the better.
