Hands-On Learning
The Engineering Project Symposium provides an opportunity for students across the college to present their projects for review by faculty, industry representatives, other students, and guests. This is a significant learning experience stressing teamwork, organization, and communication - important elements in an engineering career.

Student Presentations
Presentations showcase the results of individual and team-based efforts to solve multidisciplinary technical challenges. Between 400 and 500 undergraduate and graduate students will present dozens of projects and exhibits in approximately 20 simultaneous sessions. Faculty-mentored projects have been udertaken by students and student teams from our engineering departments: Aerospace, Chemical & Materials, Civil, Electrical & Computer, Industrial & Manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering, and Engineering Technology. Some projects are inter-disciplinary, requiring participation by students across the college and the university. Many projects are sponsored and guided by industry. Projects require planning and most often use a research, prototype, test and document strategy. The pedagogical model is greatly enhanced by an opportunity to summarize a project in a public forum.

Industry Action Council Meetings
Most of the Departments will be holding their quarterly Industry Action Council (IAC) meetings and working luncheons in conjunction with this event. Industry representatives planning to attend the Project Symposium may register when the link at the top of the page is activated in early May. Participation by industry is an important part of student learning.
