Design Day


Design Day is an annual event hosted by the University of Rochester Hajim School of Engineering & Applied Sciences.   Each year seniors in the Hajim School departments, and MS students in the Center for Medical Technology and Innovation (CMTI) program, showcase their capstone projects in person.  Students partner with companies and institutions to solve real-world engineering problems through developing prototype medical devices and research instruments. 

This year's event took place on the first Friday in May: 

Design Day 2024

Friday, May 3, 2024
Hajim Quad
9am - 3pm*
 *9-11:30am: ME, OPE, CSC, DS students
 *12:30-3pm: AME, BME, CHE, ECE, CMTI students

Design Day was created to provide students with an opportunity to plan and execute a design or research project. Proposed projects are open-ended, allowing students to exercise their creativity and make informed choices among different options. Students are assessed based on their approach and execution, not the project outcome per se, permitting them to work on difficult problems and search for innovative solutions.

Senior Design projects at the University of Rochester also provide companies with the opportunity to work with the next generation of engineers, scientists, and programmers. As part of these projects, our students create custom solutions to given problems while under the observation and guidance of a university faculty advisor.
