College of Engineering Project Symposium Mobile App
This year, instead of a Project Symposium printed program, you will have the option to utilize a new and efficient mobile app for the Project Symposium & Showcase event, whether or not you attend the event.
The new app will display times, locations, and presentation information, the same as the printed program in prior years. The app allows you to generate a personalized schedule of sessions selected for attendance, check in to direct message participating student presenters and other attendees, and join in conversation on the discussion feed, and more, enhancing the event experience.

The Engineering Project Symposium provides an opportunity for students across the college to present their projects for review by faculty, industry representatives, other students, and guests. This is a significant learning experience stressing teamwork, organization, and communication - important elements in an engineering career.
Presentations showcase the results of individual and team-based efforts to solve multidisciplinary technical challenges. Between 400 and 500 undergraduate and graduate students will present dozens of projects and exhibits in approximately 20 simultaneous sessions. Faculty-mentored projects have been undertaken by students and student teams from our engineering departments: Aerospace, Chemical & Materials, Civil, Electrical & Computer, Industrial & Manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering, and Electromechanical Engineering Technology. Some projects are interdisciplinary, requiring participation by students across the college and the university. Many projects are sponsored and guided by industry. Projects require planning and most often use a research, prototype, test and document strategy. The pedagogical model is greatly enhanced by an opportunity to summarize a project in a public forum.
