Students to display latest engineering innovations

More than 300 University of Windsor students will display the latest engineering innovations Friday, July 28, in the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation.

The capstone projects designed by fourth-year engineering students include a wearable device that uses body heat to charge cell phones, systems that monitor vehicle safety or blood pressure, and the design of bike trails between Point Pelee National Park and Hillman Marsh.

Students will present their projects to various industry partners and faculty during an open house from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. throughout the first floor of the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation.

The team-based projects are the culmination of the undergraduate program and a requirement for degree completion. Students combine the technical skills and hands-on experience acquired during their program and design a project related to their chosen discipline.

Projects within the departments of Civil and Environmental Engineering; Electrical and Computer Engineering; and Mechanical, Automotive and Materials Engineering will be on display.
