The undergraduate research programs at our University attract more and more attentions from local companies. Engineering companies participate in the programs by providing projects for engineering technology students to work on. Some of the projects may be improvement of current products, development of new products, and/or just some ideas. A production company may not have the extra engineering power to work on those projects or the results of such research may not be implemented immediately. Most of the projects may not require a fully working engineering product as result. We call this type projects proof of concept projects. There was only one company in working with us when we started incorporating undergraduate student research into MET curriculum in fall of 2008, while in 2012-2013 our students are working on five projects from four companies. The success of the project based classes provided bases for new curriculum development as well. Index Terms - Capstone, senior experience, undergraduate .research.
