As a result of Philsquare’s redesign of the KU Mechanical Engineering department website, several faculty members wanted a new look for their own faculty page. Professor Christopher Depcik provided the Philsquare team with photographs, project details, biography information and a publication list for his site. With the content provided, we were able to code and create a dynamic place for Professor Depcik to present his education, skills and projects in a professional way online.
The Mechanical Engineering (ME) department at KU wanted a unique look for their website that would allow them to stand out from competitors’ sites and showcase the department’s resources and faculty. Chair and Professor Ronald L. Dougherty’s goal for the site was to have a major impact on drawing students to KU-ME. Challenges included working within KU's brand and website guidelines and work within the State of Kansas Web Accessiblility Requirements.
