Innovation Day is where the College of Engineering seniors shine. It’s an opportunity to show the industry and the public new engineering designs developed by student teams in their Capstone courses. Capstone courses, which span over two semesters and are required for graduation, allow students to demonstrate their technical skills and draw upon their creativity to design engineering products and concepts that can be applied in the community. In some cases, student teams work with local industry on a project to solve a real-world problem.
This year, the College of Engineering again is presenting the Capstone projects online in the 2022 Innovation Day website. Each of the 100+ student teams has prepared a short lightning talk video explaining its project. Those projects range from devices that will help motorcyclists detect objects in their blind spots to technology that can recycle discarded filament from 3D printers.
