Design Lab - Projects

The mission of the O. T. Swanson Multidisciplinary Design Laboratory is to provide a clinical real world experience for students; one that builds confidence and allows them to integrate discipline-specific knowledge with practice on challenging multidisciplinary design projects.

As company mentors work closely with Rensselaer seniors on their project, they get the focused attention of some of the country's brightest and most enthusiastic engineering students. In the process, students gain exposure to the realities of the business world and sponsors gain the opportunity to turn fresh ideas into practical realities.
