About the EXPO: 

The undergraduate design experience within the Division of Engineering Programs is integrated within all four years of the undergraduate curriculum. Students participate in basic design exercises during the freshmen and sophomore 'pre-engineering' courses. This experience is later reinforced by design exercises, which are a component of many core courses and all advanced elective courses, and culminates in a final Senior Design Project. The Engineering EXPO takes place each spring semester. A Project Review occurs each December.

Thank you to our 2019 EXPO Sponsors:

Spring 2018 Senior Design EXPO Winners:

1st Place - James Cox, Nathan James, Stephen Laguerra, Christopher Vu - Biometric Pill Dispenser
"Intentional and unintentional drug misuse is an issue affecting people around the world. The Biometric Pill Dispenser directly addresses this problem by providing a simple and reliable means for administering medication (in pill form)."

2nd Place - Paul Christian, Vaughan Clewis, James Coen, Joseph Palombo - Automatic Whiteboard Eraser
"The goal of this project is to create a portable and accessible autonomous whiteboard erasing robot. The original inspiration for the project was as an aide to our visually-impaired project advisor, Prof. Kevin Shanley, but there is a potentially large demand for a robot of this type due to the widespread use of whiteboards in schools and businesses."

3rd Place - Justin Buyes, Garrett Noach, Rushi Patel, Scott To - Assistive Cutting for Investment Casting
"In the investment casting industry, parts are cut from a metal runner (often referred to as trees) system after being cast. This operation is performed using a variety of industrial cutting wheels."
