Welcome to Innovation Day 2021
We are pleased to welcome you to our annual Senior Capstone Innovation Day. For years, this event has been the culmination of our students’ academic experience. Capstone design projects are a critical part of a student’s engineering education and exemplify broad knowledge and innovation. Working in teams to develop original engineering products requires not only technical ability but also communication skills, teamwork and the ability to adapt and change. Our students graduate with this experience, ready for the challenges of professional engineering careers.
The 105 student projects this year demonstrate a high level of achievement, despite the challenges we have faced this year. Through social distancing guidelines and limited access to campus facilities and resources, our exceptional students have shown perseverance and a steadfast commitment to the professional ideals of our disciplines. In lieu of the poster and demonstration sessions that usually mark Innovation Day, this year, our graduating seniors have produced lightning talks to share with the members of our K-12 community as well as our industry partners. We are proud of their achievements in the face of unprecedent challenges.
Innovation Day would not be possible without our capstone instructors, and we’d like to thank them for helping guide our students as they developed these projects.
