CETA Design Expo – Spring 2016
On Friday, April 29, 2016 – The College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture (CETA) celebrated the accomplishments of the sophomore ES 242 – final projects and senior capstone design students with CETA Design Expo: Spring 2016 – event and poster competitions. The all-day event held for the first time in the Sports Center, Intramural Gym was a day of success and celebration.
The ES 242 – Engineering by Design classes participated in an in-depth study of the design process to include problem solving methodologies, evaluation of alternate solutions, economic analysis, ethical constraints, group dynamics, and presentation techniques. Students undertake design projects specifically chosen to meet the objectives of the course. The Design Challenge this semester focused on ways to improve safety among older adults in their daily lives, both inside their homes and in their community.
The winners of the ES 242 – sophomore poster competition were as follows:
Sophomores: ES 242 –1st Place:
Mikaela Nelson & Thienly Nguyen & Jathnan Alzabadin & Matthew Bernocco
2nd Place:Ahmad Ashkanani & Mark Markiewicz & Carl Mitchell & Mofareh Almakhalas
Lock & Go
2nd Place:Kyle Bergman & Ahmad Alotaibi & Andrew Strakhman
Fall Tracking and Injury Prevention System
Senior Design/Capstone courses are the culminating experience for students. Students work on projects in their field of study with faculty mentors or external project sponsors to design, fabricate, and/or test a device, process, or system. This is a major design experience based on the knowledge and skills acquired in earlier course work, and incorporating industry appropriate standards and realistic constraints. Students who participated this spring are enrolled in:
AET 489 - Senior Capstone ProjectAUD 471 - Senior Project
BE 461 - Biomedical Engineering Design Project II
CE 460 - Civil Engineering Design Project
ECE 483 - Capstone Design II
ECT 481 - Senior Design Project II for Engineering Technology
ME 461 – Acoustics Capstone Design
ME 473 - Capstone Design Project II
MET 482 - Capstone for Engineering Technology
The winners of the Senior Capstone Projects – poster competition were as follows:
