Senior Engineering Design Show is tomorrow
The University of St. Thomas School of Engineering will host a Senior Design Show from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Friday, May 9, in the Owens Science Hall lobby. Come see the quality projects, talk with the students and faculty, and meet the satisfied customers. This is a trade show-style event with each team hosting its own booth.
The Engineering Department works hard to provide St. Thomas students with real-life experience. The senior design clinic is one of the ways this is done. Student teams serve as contract engineers to complete projects for industry "customers." Companies supply the need, St. Thomas supplies the team.
The senior engineering students, working with faculty experts, have performed some novel technology projects this year for customers, ranging from small groups to large corporations and serving a broad array of industries: a food-serving product (Service Ideas), UAV landing system (Lockheed Martin), energy-generation device (Lockheed Martin), household window-cleaning product (3M), exhaust system redesign (Polaris), golf club cleaning (private inventor), power-line protection (Savage Electric Power Company), bio-diesel process (Crown Iron), respiration-rate sensor (private inventor), material testing system (Mate), grille assembly automation (Andersen Windows) and a catheter manipulation tool (St. Jude Medical).
