These Design Expo's are amazing. This year's Expo was no different, awesome students doing the coolest things. For me, this is a window into the current technologies that our technical community is mastering and adapting in their design projects at the undergraduate level. What a new hire into industry would have in her or his technical tool set...
|Hosted by the Pavlis Honors College and the College of Engineering, the work of over 600 students in dozens of projects was on display. Here's a pic of a virtual gaming system developed by the students.|
|A beautiful day in Houghton! The University Mascot is a Husky - as in the Michigan Tech Huskies!|
|I pulled over to take this pic. Mid-April and a couple feet of snow slowly melting... The Keweenaw Peninsula gets a lot of snow. Follow the link to see the accumulation for this year!|
One of the coolest things I saw was a Raspberry PI powered robotic submersible designed to dive to 300 feet and acquire video. Another adaptation of the Phantom 4, for a fraction of the cost... Materials Science Research that was very interesting, and a Hybridized truck from the 1940's! What a great group, the creativity and technical acumen was really impressive. These students will go on to do amazing things. I'll close with these videos from last years Expo...
I had to add this, it gives you a flavor for the students at this great university!
