Formal Written Report Format for 

ETME489 "Mechanical Engineering Technology Capstone 1"

and

EMEC489 "Mechanical Engineering Capstone 1"


A large part of the course grade in each of the two capstone semesters depends upon well-written professional-quality reports describing the specific tasks performed during the design project. Concise discussion and documentation of all aspects of the design is required. Of particular importance are effective use of images, illustrations, figures and tables to convey information in the most appropriate format. High-resolution color images and figures are recommended. The final report must be printed on plain white paper and bound with a plastic binder. The report is to be written on a team basis (one report per design group), and team members should author approximately equal portions of the final report.

A strong emphasis should be placed on streamlined, efficient writing: Proofread for brevity and eliminate redundancy within each chapter and between chapters. Your goal should be to produce a lean, technically precise and accurate document. Prepare this formal report with the following elements, in order:

I. FRONT MATTER

II. BODY

III. APPENDICES
