Provost’s Prize
The Provost’s Prize recognizes the most outstanding Senior Capstone
Design Project of the College of Engineering’s Design Day as judged by a
panel of engineers from industry and the Deans of the College of
Engineering. The winning team is selected from the winners of the Prism
Venture Partners Prize (electrical and computer engineering) and the
Thomas Alva Edison Undergraduate Design Award (mechanical
engineering). The selection is made by a panel consisting of the Dean of the
College of Engineering, two Associate Deans of the College of Engineering,
a judge of the Prism Venture Partners Prize, and a judge of the Thomas Alva
Edison Undergraduate Design Award.
The decision is based upon the quality of:
 Formulation of problem definition, including constraints,
specifications, customer needs, etc.
 Design synthesis, including development of design alternatives and
formulation of final design.
 Engineering modeling and analysis, including predictive modeling,
calculations, and evaluation.
 Prototype, model, or product produced.
 Communication of the project and performance or predicted
performance of product in written, oral, and visual forms
Creativity and innovation play a significant role in the selection. A
substantial consideration should be the potential impact the project has on
the sponsor, industry, and society.
