More than 290 students in the College of Engineering's integrative design course submitted projects offering a range of innovations, including using an online radio control system for photovoltaic generators, extracting boron from sea water to produce liquid fuel, and monitoring the heart in a way that provides long-term medical diagnostics.
"The course is designed for students to deal with a different vision of industrial problems, to find new opportunities to solve them," Hamad Al Jassmi, head of Graduation Projects, said. "It's also a good opportunity to attract students of the College of Engineering in institutions dealing with the industry, through their work on their projects."
The two-semester integrative design course teaches students design methodology, project management and organization. Students get hands-on experience with global design specifications, in addition to enhancing their communication skills.
"The course gives students real experience in design, by making use of the basic information acquired during the years of study to make modern products, or to produce new equipment or upgrade existing operations," Al Jassmi said.
