Engineering and Applied Science Seniors Prepare for Design Symposium
December 1, 2009 — The University of Wyoming College of Engineering and Applied Science will hold its 15th annual Senior Design Symposium Thursday, Dec. 3, at the UW Conference Center/Hilton Garden Inn.
More than 60 college seniors representing architectural, civil, chemical, petroleum, mechanical, electrical and computer engineering will exhibit and present individual, team and interdisciplinary design projects. Student presentations begin at 8 a.m. and students will be available to answer questions about their projects.
Designs include a bicycle lighting system, biomass to liquid-fuels project, replacement software for Wyoming Energy Council job tracking and several others.
Their projects will be evaluated by more than 20 judges representing
business, industry and the university. An awards dinner will be held the
same evening to recognize students and judges.
The UW College of Engineering and Applied Science, American Council of Engineering Consultants, the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation and the Volpi/Cupal Engineering Design Fund sponsor the symposium. For more information, call (307) 766-4248 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
