As a capstone class prior to graduation, students in IT 495 work with a faculty advisor and one of our corporate community partners to solve "real life" manufacturing problems using the problem solving skills and knowledge they have gained from their studies.

These are the Senior Class Projects from IT-495 Spring 2019 under Professor Mollick. We appreciate the cooperation of our corporate community partners: Appleton Electric Inc., Fibergrate Composite Structures, L3 Communications, and St. Gobain Abrasives, and would like to thank them for allowing us to show what an ET student can do.
