Seniors test products in Crystal River Preserve for capstone design course

The goal of capstone design, or Senior Design, is to provide engineering students a culminating course bringing together the many aspects of engineering design. Reverse engineering, in which students examine in detail the structure and functionality of an existing product, can be a key part of the design experience. Senior design faculty instructor Prof. Greg Sawyer brought MAE seniors to a local spring to test and evaluate several commercial diving scooters as part of a reverse engineering project in support of their capstone design projects.
