Senior project is an educational program that is designed to challenge and develop the intellect, understanding, and learning of a student. It is a part of the curriculum of high schools and colleges in the United States, Canada, and many other countries, and it is something that you can't escape from if you intend to graduate. The purpose of a senior project is to focus on an intensive part of independent work, which eventually culminates in a theoretical thesis. A strong basic knowledge about the subject/topic and the real time application of the concept/study is what defines a good senior project.
A college senior project mainly consists of four steps/stages referred as 4 Ps viz., Paper i.e., research papers, Project, Portfolio and Presentation. Students have the levy of choosing any random topic to make their senior project, which indeed is great as one can choose their area of interest and explore it further in the project. However, for some who are not really certain of their area of interest, a wide choice instead of simplifying the issue, tends to cause a lot of confusion. And if you happen to be one of them ( then I am somewhat like you!) then this is where you could find an assorted list of selective project examples that might give you a dimension to what you might have in mind. Consider this list as you'd consider a 'self-employment ideas' guide and what you can do is, instead of picking them as it is, you could refer to them and you'll notice that you'd come up with your own ideas.
Project Examples for Senior Students
Listed below are some of the ideas and examples of senior projects for college students:
  • Control Systems for Highly Secure Websites (Computer Science and Information Technology)

Senior Projects for High School
Given below are some suggestive senior project topics for high school, many of which can be used as science fair projects:
  • Learning Ability Vs. Age (Biology)
  • Population fluctuations in Insects (Biology)
  • Plant and Animal Cells Growth by Cloning (Biology)
  • Hydroponics Experiment (Biology)
  • Efficient Home Insulations Study (Engineering)
  • LED Illumination vs Incandescent Illumination in Practice (Engineering)
  • Landscaping and Architecture Effect on Energy Consumption (Engineering)
  • Methods of Breaking Crude Oil in Seawater (Engineering)
  • Methods of Controlling Erosion (Earth Science)
  • Relation between Temperature Invasions and Wind Directions (Earth Science)
  • Does Weather Affect Human Emotions (Earth Science)
Senior projects are often a challenge and what makes it more difficult is not having a list of projects to choose from. It is imperative that one spends more time in research for the project rather than spending days to find the right topic. Although many students are already aware of what they want to work upon and what their project should be based on, they seem to struggle when it comes to choosing the exact topic. The references given to categories the different topics belong to, will help you explore the subject further.
Never stop learning even if you've got an A+ in your senior project. Learning always adds value to your knowledge base and also reflects in your personality. Signing off with a quote by Newton D. Baker: The man who graduates today and stops learning tomorrow is uneducated the day after.
