So its coming up on my senior year at CSUN and I was wondering what you guys would recommend to go into as my senior design project. It will be something that I will be working on for a whole year, 1 semester of design and another semester of fabrication/testing. Also all my senior electives will be centered around the project. PICK ONE!(poll coming)
1) Aerospace - Design and build a autonomous plane to navigate a specific terrain and return back with the information gathered. Kind of like a UAV(Unmanned Aerial Vehicle). This project will focus on programming, controls, aerodynamics, propulsion etc.
2) SAE Formula car. Basically a Formula 1 racecar. Last year they built a new chassi, exhaust and 2 engines. Both engines blew on race day(lulz). Supposedly our school does very well on this project and we dont completely suck a55.
3) Human Powered Vehicle - Design and build a human powered vehicle. Last year they built a carbon road bike with a front draft shield. Theres alot that goes into this project, lots of calculations.
Decide prz, I need a future so that I'm not going to be living paycheck to paycheck. Thnx!
