Program for Enhanced Design Experience (PEDE)
The Program for Enhanced Design Experience (PEDE) is a two-semester design sequence (typically during the senior year) that is closely tied to actual industrial design projects. All PEDE projects have an industrial sponsor and are guided by a lead engineer from industry and a faculty adviser from the home department, usually with the assistance of a dedicated teaching assistant.
The admission process for PEDE takes place during the Spring semester. Students apply on ICON by clicking on Mechanical and Industrial Senior Design Sign-up under Ongoing semester (you will need to click on the "semester" drop-down list and change the current selection, "Spring 2013 to Ongoing"). To sign up, go to the Dropbox and upload your resume to "Request for Resume" and then go to Surveys to complete the survey form. PEDE is required by the Mechanical Engineering Design EFA.
