Lyle Senior Design Expo 2021

The Lyle School of Engineering’s Senior Design Expo was held virtually on Sunday, May 9, 2021. The Senior Design Expo is a chance for students in senior design classes to present their client based projects, research and work to the SMU community.

For this year’s expo, we will have a virtual poster session paired with recorded student presentations that will be available for viewing starting May 5th and run through the summer. Posters and presentations can be viewed by clicking the button below.

Student Submissions Requirements

For students who are currently in Lyle Senior design classes, please submit the following to

  • Your team name and the names of all of your teammates
  • Class number, section, and Professor’s name
  • Title of project, and client if applicable
  • A digital copy of your team’s poster in PowerPoint (.pptx) form. This should be in standard 16:9 format. Typically, for a poster you would only utilize one slide, but for the purposes of readability you may have up to 3 slides total. Please do not have a dedicated title slide. 
  • The link to your team’s recorded presentation posted to YouTube. Presentations should be approximately 3 minutes in length. You may record your presentation in the format you desire and then upload to YouTube. Although for ease, we suggest that you record the presentation using Zoom, with one teammate sharing their screen. This way, you can show the slides in full screen presentation mode with a box in the far right displaying the currently speaking team member.

Deadline: April 30, 2021 at midnight

Completed submissions must be emailed to no later than April 30, 2021 at midnight.
