Welcome to the Engineering Project Development Center
The Engineering Project Development Center (EPDC) is a facility at
Tufts University that supports the undergraduate engineering
curriculum. This facility is a start-to-finish project center
which enables students to take their projects from the initial
"idea stage" to the final "product and presentation stage."
In the Teamwork Area, students work in their project development
groups brainstorming their ideas and accessing information from
the Tufts main library as well as over the internet. After
finalizing their design plans, they move to the Computational
Design Studio. This is where the real design work takes place,
as students apply their CAD skills to their project design on
state-of-the-art PC workstations.
As the use of computers in engineering continues to increase, it
is important that engineering students are able to develop
intuitive, practical skills through hands-on testing and
application of their ideas. After building and testing their
prototypes, students can use the Conference Room to present
their project to other students, faculty and industry worldwide.
Our facilities, of course, are for use for everyday study and
homework assignments as well.
