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.
