Design Symposium Held December 1, 2011

December 6, 2011 —

Design Symposium Held December 1, 2011

Over 130 college seniors representing architectural, civil, chemical, petroleum, electrical and computer engineering and computer science exhibited and presented individual and team design projects at our annual College of Engineering and Applied Science Senior Design Symposium. Their projects were evaluated and assessed by over 20 judges representing business, industry, and the University. Students were required to design, and in some cases fabricate the project selected with their advisers.

Over 40 individual projects were presented during the symposium. Projects included a new design approaches for 15th street between Garfield and Willett Drive, Design of a Wind Turbine Tower Test facility, Ibuprofen Pain patch, Fracture Simulations, UW Performing Arts Center Designs, Automated Frost Free Hydrant and many more.  A complete list of the projects is included in this year's program.

 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.
