ABET Description of an Engineering Design Course:the process of devising a system, component, or process to meet desired needs

  • Design Build and/or Design Analysis is emphasized.
  • It is a decision-making process (often iterative), in which the basic sciences and mathematics and engineering sciences are applied to convert resources optimally to meet a stated objective.
  • Among the fundamental elements of the design process are the establishment of objectives and criteria, synthesis, analysis, construction, testing, and evaluation.
  • It is essential to include a variety of realistic constraints, such as economic factors, safety, reliability, aesthetics, ethics, and environmental & social impacts.

Graduation Projects Examination GuidelinesExamination Committee Members (ECMs) will observe the following guidelines:

Graduation Project I:Ensure that each team fulfills the following:

  • Clarity of project objective: Examine if the project falls under a Design-Build or Design-Study ABET category. Any “research-like” or “term-paper-like” project is a strong candidate for a grade of “F”.
  • Approach Selection: Did the team consider several approaches? Which one did they choose from their literature search and why? Look at the presented justifications.
  • Plan: Is there a clear plan? This is simple and straightforward. If the team is not adhering to the proposed plan, then there is a lack in organization.
  • Preliminary Work/Results:For Project I, this is optional but guarantees high grade if all other elements are satisfied.
  • Consideration of Environmental, Economic, and/or Social Impact:Each project must have at least two of such elements.
  • Adherence to report guidelines:Make sure that the report is prepared according to the ‘Writing Report Guidelines’.

Graduation Project II: Ensure that each team fulfills the following:

  • Same requirements as for Graduation Project I.
  • Results are a MUST.
  • What are the deliverables?
