Use of Capstone Design Project in Junior Level Materials and ManufacturingCourse. Author: Richard B. Griffin, Program Chair, Texas A&M University at Qatar,PO Box 11130, College Station, TX 77842 John Bryant Andy Conkey Texas A&M University has had a combined materials and manufacturingcourse (MEEN 360) that includes a design component and an experimentationcourse (MEEN 404) that requires students to design, build and analyze anexperiment. A variety of different projects have been used during the years thecourses have been taught. This year one of Texas A&M University at Qatar Mechanical Engineering(MEEN) capstone design projects is the Shell Eco Marathon car. MEEN willparticipate in the contest in Malaysia. The senior class is small and they requirehelp in completing the design. The management team for the ECO Marathonproject is planning on providing potential design projects to students in the abovetwo classes. The resulting projects will be evaluated with respect to their impact on theundergraduate course that it is being used in and how it supplements the seniorcapstone design class. Samples of student projects will be included in the paper.
