Senior Design Program

 

FY 2017-18 Senior Design Program - Proposals Due October 20, 2017

NC Space Grant is soliciting proposals for projects that integrate NASA Mission Directorate research and/or technology into university senior engineering design courses. Proposals must clearly define how the senior design project contributes to current NASA research.

NC Space Grant anticipates supporting 3-5 senior design teams. The award available per student team is $3,000 (based on availably of funds).  Funds can be used to purchase supplies and materials to support student senior engineering design projects.
