Our Electrical and Computer Engineering senior design program is called UTDesign®.
A senior design project team is typically comprised of 4 to 6 students, a faculty advisor, and a company technical mentor. This team creates a project specification, ideate potential solutions, research and develop a preliminary design, mature the design, build a proof of concept to the design, and test the “product” to verify initial specifications and make recommendations for future designs.
Corporate sponsors provide the idea, sponsorship fee, and meet with the team on a weekly basis to review the previous week’s work, determine and mitigate barriers, and coach the students to success.

“My favorite thing about senior design was the time I spent brainstorming technological ideas that pertained to my specific project and seeing our prototype to fruition with my friends and the support of our professors!”
Former Student, Alex Moreno
