The Mu2e experiment aims to improve, by four orders of magnitude, current sensitivity in the search for the charged-lepton flavor violating (cLFV) neutrino-less conversion of a negative muon into an electron. The conversion process will be identified by a distinctive signature of a mono-energetic electron with energy slightly below the muon rest mass. In the Standard Model this process has a negligible rate. However, in many Beyond the Standard Model scenarios its rate is within the reach of Mu2e sensitivity. In this paper, we explain the Mu2e design guidelines and summarize the status of the experiment.
