Internship Title: Capstone Design Team Optimization Automation
Department: Mechanical Engineering
Mentor Names: Alejandro Gutierrez and Ashlie Martini
Interdisciplinary projects and learning environments are believed to provide significant benefits to students. Engineering Capstone Design involves interdisciplinary teams of students working on projects identified by companies and organizations. The teams are created based on multiple factors, including student major, student interest, and project requirements. Creating these teams is challenging because there are so many times competing factors. It is therefore an optimization problem to create the teams. We are looking for a student to automate this optimization to guide team creation by the instructor.
