Senior Design Symposium


The University of Wyoming College of Engineering and Applied Science will host its 2021 spring Senior Design Symposium virtually as it showcases a multitude of projects presented by students from various engineering and applied science disciplines.

The symposium is a time-honored tradition for the college to help feature senior capstone projects. Students may choose to represent their projects alone or can join up in teams with other students. Projects cover a wide range of topic areas.

Students put in hundreds of hours to prepare for the event.
