Senior Design - Innovation Day

About Innovation Day

At UNF, we take great pride in the quality of our engineering students and faculty. One of the strongest aspects of our engineering education is the Senior Design experience. In early September, Senior Design students are assigned to teams and subsequently work together to develop multiple solutions to a design challenge. Nearly all projects come from the Jacksonville community: nonprofit organizations, local government, and companies. Students work diligently to develop the best solution within the given constraints. In Civil Engineering projects, the designs are scrutinized by a Board of Professional Engineers (PEs) from the Jacksonville engineering community. For Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, there is a design, build, and test requirement. The professors and community mentors then review the Electrical and Mechanical Engineering projects and designs, following a procedure that mimics design reviews in the industry. Each year, we showcase the work of our graduating class of engineers at Innovation Day. We want to invite you to this important event personally. Come, ask questions (the more challenging, the better), find out more about what we do, and how the next generation of engineers overcome engineering challenges and make an impact in Northeast Florida. You may find the next employee for your organization or decide to become more engaged with the School of Engineering; we welcome your help. Our vision is to provide industry and community-engaged undergraduate programs among the best in the country.
