The project team parallels that found in industry. Students accept roles according to their skills and specialties and contribute to make the team and project successful as a whole. Students are involved with their projects from concept to completion. Teams manage all aspects of the project, such as formulating the idea, transferring the design to paper, accounting for design constraints, adhering to standards and specifications, selecting materials, procuring products, considering economic factors, building the prototype, and presenting their results. Some projects have been so innovative and marketable that students have turned their ideas into successful businesses and patents.
