Team projects cap engineering student careers

Automation and communication were the order of the day as fourth-year students of electrical and computer engineering presented their capstone projects in the Centre for Engineering Innovation. Among the projects were a device that can open or close a garage door from across the globe, a smart door that can respond to the presence of visitors, and a wireless monitoring system for solar panels.

Crushing competition to test construction competence

The campus community is invited to watch as a group of third-year civil engineering students see their best efforts crushed, Wednesday in the Industrial Courtyard. Students in professor Amr ElRagaby’s class “Finite Element for Analysis and Design” will test the load-bearing abilities of model bridges they have designed and built from craft sticks and glue.

Design contest win secures free trip to New Orleans for engineering students

A group of fourth-year engineering students will get an all-expenses paid trip to New Orleans this fall after taking top honours in a contest that required them to design a new wastewater treatment plan for a rapidly growing region north of Toronto.

Civil and environmental engineering students Shibin Pennickara, Hajjar Al-Hasna Ahmad Rizal, Yanting Liu, and Stephanie Shaw won first place in the Water Environment Association of Ontario student design competition, held April 6 at the London Convention Center.
