Winners of Spring 2013 Senior Design Competition

Posted: May 21, 2013

"Maji to Tuleeni" Grand Prize Winning Team with Keynote Speaker Ray Juzaitis

The hard work of 77 senior design students at the College of Engineering was proudly presented and displayed at the spring semester's Fred and Harriet Cox Senior Design Competition on May 9. From a water intake and pipeline system for a remote village in Africa to a shelving system that will help wheelchair-bound people reach top shelves, an app to make math fun for kids to a multi-tool for theater technicians, the projects showcased the best of students' creativity, dedication, and knowledge.

Judges from local industry evaluated the projects based on innovation, commercial potential, and presentation quality, and awards were presented at the annual Fed and Harriet Cox Senior Design Dinner and Awards the next evening. Congratulations to all!
