Abstract

The engineering technology programs at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi share a capstone projects course that allows students to use their problem solving skills and the technical knowledge they gain throughout their college experience to develop a device or system that meets some specific requirements. As a result of concerns raised during a recent ABET accreditation visit, the course was restructured in order to ensure consistency in the quality of the projects being completed by students. This paper describes the changes and briefly presents the progress that has been made since 2004 Spring Semester.
