Design Project

The nature of projects in this course varies from year to year.

Recent Projects

Nature and Scope of the Project - Spring 2018

To be decided.

The students will work in teams.


Students will group themselves in teams of about 4 or 5 students, depending on the size of the class, and each team will work on a separate project for the duration of the term. Teams will proceed with the corresponding sustainable design project under the supervision of an assigned TA and the professor.

Each project will culminate by the end of the term in an oral presentation in front of a review board and the entire class. A 20-to-30 page report suitable for later use is also required.
