One distinguishing feature of Seattle University's engineering programs is the Project Center. All senior engineering students participate in a year-long sequence which is considered a "capstone" design experience. The projects bring together all aspects of curriculum (thermal & fluid science, solid mechanics, dynamics & control, and manufacturing). Students also experience the interdisciplinary nature of "real world" problem-solving in mechanical engineering.
The exceptional experience is made possible by small class sizes, a teaching-focused faculty, and the university’s proximity to a robust industry base in the Puget Sound. In keeping with university mission, students also take on socially conscious engineering projects such as designing devices that assist persons with disability, developing green/renewable energy, and improving water quality through appropriate technology development.
The richness of the scope and technical depth of the projects are unparalleled in the Pacific Northwest. Based on the design projects, our students routinely place 1st and 2nd in the annual ASME Western Washington student paper contest. In the past two years, our students have also placed in the top-three (four students total) in the ASME Old Guard Oral Presentation Competition in District-D.
