Senior Design Day 2020

  • “Uncertainty is the only constant. Innovation requires an open mind, patience for iteration, acceptance of failure, willingness to go the extra mile, a full stomach, and a sound process for understanding the problem at hand.”

    —Luke J. Guerrero (BS’05), Computer Science

Support Senior Design

Senior Design projects at the University of Rochester 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 under the observation and guidance of a University faculty advisor.
