WNEU College of Engineering to 
Host Emerging Engineers Expo May 5

SPRINGFIELD — The Western New England University College of Engineering will host its Emerging Engineers Expo on Thursday, May 5 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Alumni Healthful Living Center. The event will feature exhibits by students in the Freshman Innovation class and senior engineering capstone design projects. The exhibits will be judged by enginering faculty, industry representatives, and alumni. This event is free and open to the public.

The Emerging Engineers Expo will showcase 80 senior design projects and 42 freshman product-innovation projects. All of the exhibits feature innovative student inventions. These year-long projects are the capstone of their education and affords them the chance to apply what they have learned in the classroom to an innovative product that improves the quality of human life.

In the past, these projects have resulted in groundbreaking inventions, patents, and award-winning papers and presentations while giving students real-world experience. Those in attendance will have the chance to speak with the students behind these novel ideas and learn about their implementation.

Senior design projects are required of all graduating engineering students, including those studying biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, and mechanical engineering. For a list of all projects, click here.
