    Abstract

    The engineering design process is a core piece of engineering education. Students are typically introduced to the process during their first semester of school and are taught many methods to improving their own design process. Several models have been introduced by professional teams, researchers, and students, each having its own particular use and qualities. A review of such models was conducted grading each of their qualities on a scale. Overall scores showed that some sort of interactive and iterative web is the best design process to use. However, other models brought forth important pieces or different perspectives that can be integrated into other designs.
