Senior Design in Biosystems Engineering
The OSU Applications Engineers are a major source of project suggestions.
The Applications Engineering Program is a partnership between Oklahoma State University, the Oklahoma Alliance for Manufacturing Excellence and the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science & Technology (OCAST), bringing engineering assistance to rural Oklahoma's small manufacturers. These small companies often have problems but lack the technical expertise to solve them, or the problem might not be an immediate or high priority. The Applications Engineering Program has been an excellent pipeline for state companies willing to sponsor a Senior Design project. The OSU Food & Agricultural Products Center (FAPC) and the OSU New Product Development Center (NPDC) are also sources for and partners in BAE Senior Design projects.
State ImpactThe Oklahoma Alliance for Manufacturing Excellence conducts an assessment of the
Applications Engineering Program and the benefits to the program's clients.
Based on their evaluation, the BAE Senior Design class has a significant economic
