Research & Design Projects
Students majoring in Composite Materials Engineering (CME) have the opportunity to manage multiple design projects and see them come to fruition. Every year, the CME Department is amazed by what their students accomplish.
As part of the two-course capstone design experience, you will get to work with a team to turn a product idea into a fully functioning prototype. These products must have a market demand, incorporate composite materials, and be constructed using WSU’s lab facilities.
You will also get the opportunity to create a website with your team to highlight the stages of the design process. Explore past projects to see what’s possible for you at WSU:
- Carbon Ascensus Tree Climbing Stick: a lightweight and strong tree climbing stick that can withstand any kind of weather
- Carbon Ultraviolet Basket (CUB): the dream of an avid frolfer (frisbee golfer)—a portable disc golf basket
- Downforcer: a front bumper sports car performance enhancer
- KyPack: a packable kayak perfect for the sole adventurer
