As major companies transition to an Agile development methodology it is crucial that mechanical engineering students learn this process before they enter the workforce. In order to prepare students, The University of Vermont’s Mechanical Engineering Senior Design course has implemented an Scrum methodology into its curriculum. This study will look at its implementation and analyze student perceptions after working with Scrum on their senior design projects. Student surveys showed strong support for implementing the Agile methodology, while peer and client feedback maintained a high rating from 2018. In addition, recommendations for future implementation will also be provided.
