Mid-Semester Capstone Presentations

March 2018

Mid-Semester Capstone Presentations The Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture senior cadets presented their prototypes, followed a week later with a briefing, for their Capstone projects. The Capstone is the culmination of their work as engineering undergraduates and a chance for those students to showcase what they have learned in a real-world application. This year’s Naval Architecture projects include both CG and commercial icebreaker designs, while this year’s Mechanical Engineering projects range from small, un-crewed autonomous airborne systems (sUAS) to self-balancing robotic assistants to tabletop demonstrators for evaluation source and type of vibrations in a ship’s propulsion shaft.
