MEM 390 Projects at DHMC and at the WRVA
Engineering 390 (ENGG 390) is a required summer capstone course in the MEM Program. In ENGG 390, students complete an individual project on-site for an external sponsor, usually as a paid summer internship. During the course of the ENGG 390 Project students gain experience working on real-world projects, while being monitored and graded by faculty. During the internship, the student must have responsibility for a project on which he or she will report to the faculty through an initial scope-of-work proposal, two progress reports, a final report, and a final oral presentation presented to a review board consisting of faculty and external reviewers. The sponsors of these projects benefit from the expertise and outside perspective of the students, and the results of the effort. Purely academic research projects where there is no professional or corporate sponsor are not considered.
