Engineering Students to Present Capstone Projects Through Poster Competition
Students from computer science, biomedical, biological, agricultural, chemical, computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering fields will be presenting their undergraduate capstone projects during a single, two-hour event in Bud Walton Arena this Thursday, April 27.
From 5-7 p.m., College of Engineering students will be displaying the capstone of their engineering skills as they present the final project of their college careers.
The posters presented are the result of a year-long project undertaken by students in their senior year and represent the practical and applicable engineering skills developed by undergraduate students throughout their undergraduate education.
Projects on display range from autonomous cars and boats, to the Optimized Injection of CO2 into Beer, to Reducing the Cycle Time of the Infusion Preparations Process, and beyond.
This is the first event of its kind to be held and College of Engineering students are excited to have the opportunity to share their projects with faculty, staff, industry, and the university community as a whole.
Please come support your department's design teams and our students' hard work at this inaugural event. All attendants will be given the opportunity to vote on the best poster.
They look forward to seeing you there!
