The senior design program which is highly structured, provides background in team building and communication among other engineering topics and makes use of a time-line approach is discussed. A multidisciplinary focus is encouraged in senior design since difficult engineering problems can be uniquely solved with input from multiple knowledge sources and perspectives. It is an iterative, decision-making process in which the students apply previously learned material to meet a stated objective. It is suggested that team skills should be developed early and used throughout the curriculum and not just in senior design.
