Design Symposium Held December 2, 2010
December 7, 2010 — An estimated 200 people attended the College of Engineering and Applied Science Senior Design Symposium held December 2, 2010. Over 70 college seniors representing architectural, civil, chemical, petroleum, electrical and computer engineering exhibited and presented individual and team design projects. Their projects were judged by over 20 judges representing business, industry, and the University. Students were required to design, and in some cases to fabricate, the project selected with their advisers.
Nearly 25 individual projects were presented during the symposium. Projects included a design of a wireless weather station, fabric measurer/cutter system, civil engineering dam design and design planning for the Albany County Public Library Renovation.
The UW College of Engineering and Applied Science would like to thank the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation and the Volpi/Cupal Electrical Engineering Design Fund for sponsorship of the symposium.
