ENGR 4951U – Capstone Systems Design for Mechanical, Automotive, Mechatronics and Manufacturing Engineering II


This capstone design engineering course constitutes the second part (continuation) of a two-term capstone design endeavour which started in the fall term through ENGR 4950U–Capstone Systems Design for Mechanical, Automotive, Mechatronics and Manufacturing Engineering I  course. These two consecutive capstone design courses (ENGR 4950U and ENGR 4951U) represent a critical mandatory component of the CEAB (Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board) accredited engineering degree programs offered by our university’s Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. They provide a culminating capstone design engineering experience that integrates aspects of many prior engineering courses taken by the enrolled students. This second part of a two-part graduating year capstone design courses is envisioned to represent a culminating major teamwork design experience for engineering students specializing in the areas of automotive, mechanical, thermofluids and energy, mechatronics, and/or manufacturing engineering. It is meant to allow senior-level students to integrate their engineering knowledge and produce useful engineering artifacts. During this winter term, the students will continue to work in the same small groups that were created during the previous fall term. Students will complete the design and development of the system that they first started in the Capstone Systems Design I course on a project of major breadth that will require them to integrate the knowledge that they have gained throughout their program of study and apply it to the design and development of a complete device and/or a complete predominantly automotive, mechanical, thermofluids and energy, mechatronics, and/or manufacturing system. By the end of this course students will have completed the entire design process for their projects including the following tasks: design refinements based on findings from proof-of-concept prototype; detailed design and engineering analysis; test plan; test results and product validation; final project presentation; final project report; and prototype system demonstration.
