Capstone Project Workshop
The Faculty of Engineering and Technology at Al-Zaytoonah University organized a workshop for its senior students entitled: “Senior Design Projects: Objectives and Goals”. The workshop was implemented by Dr. Rashad M. Hanbali, P.E., PTOE. Dr. Hanbali indicated that the senior design project is the capstone of design education in engineering and technology at Al – Zaytoonah University of Jordan. It concludes the series of required design courses. The senior design project is a set of two required design courses that students usually take in their last two semesters of study. Dr. Hanbali explained that the senior design capstone is a required component of an accredited engineering program. He added that the desired objectives of a senior design project are to incorporate real-world experience into the curriculum, develop ability to apply acquired knowledge to solve engineering problems and to design realistic systems, components, and/or processes, in addition to develop ability to function in a team environment to gain organizational and communication skills and to understand professional and ethical responsibilities. Dr. Hanbali explained the process of developing a senior design capstone and stated that the end-result of these efforts is a product that meaningfully adds value to the participants including students, advisor, and faculty. Dr. Hanbali answered several students and attendees questions.
