Dr. Nazzal is the lead faculty overseeing the two engineering design courses in the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering.
Capstone Design/Senior Design culminates the undergraduate educational experiences. In Senior Design, students complete an intensive, semester-long, team-based engineering design project. By the end of the semester, students will learn how to properly define and scope a problem; identify and analyze relevant factors; apply appropriate industrial engineering methodologies and computational tools; generate and evaluate alternative solutions; and improve their skills in:
- Technical writing,
- Public speaking,
- Working within a team, and
- Project and time management

Cornerstone Design introduces students to problems in Industrial and Systems Engineering through project-based learning utilizing past Senior Design projects. Emphasis is on identifying and specifying the opportunities for improving a system through diagnostic data analysis, scoping a solution strategy, and writing/presenting a proposal for addressing the client’s need. In addition, students will receive guidance to help develop their professional skills in communication, professionalism, and team work.
Upon successful completion of this course students should be able to:
