Preliminary Design Review
ETME489 / EMEC489 Fall Semester 2012
Schedule and Content Notes
ME/MET Capstone 1 Fall 2012 "PDR" project presentations are
scheduled for Tuesday October 16th and Tuesday October
To accommodate the large class size we will schedule PDR sessions in TWO different classroom venues on TWO consecutive weeks, per the schedule below.
Students - Consider scheduling constraints of your faculty advisor when requesting a presentation time. Not all advisors will be able to attend, and typically only a few sponsors will make it - but please make an effort to accommodate their schedules. All students are expected to share equal portions of their group presentation, and must attend ALL presentations during the session in which they present.

It is possible that some groups may be further along: For instance, analysis or modeling of the preferred configuration may be under-way. That is fine, as long as all intermediate steps have been properly addressed: Consider the above list a minimum level of achievement at this stage of the term.
Group PDR Performance will be evaluated by the instructor based on the content recommendations listed above. Written feedback from attendees will also be solicited.
