ME Design Day, Fall 2011
The Department of Mechanical Engineering once again hosted a successful ME Design Day on December 6, 2011, in the Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building on the University of Maryland campus. The purpose of the event was to present the senior capstone course, ENME472: Integrated Product and Process Development, prototypes to the campus community. The afternoon event featured an exhibition of the 14 teams’ capstone projects, which showcased the exceptional research and innovation of the Clark School's mechanical engineering students.
During the event, a panel of faculty and student judges reviewed the projects and scored each on several criteria, which was later averaged to determine the overall project grade for the class. Additionally, the public was also asked to participate and the People's Choice Award went to Team Green Tech for their "Echo Power Tent."
Also attending the event was the Terps Racing Team.
People's Choice Winners:
- 1st Place Winner - Team Green Tech, "Echo Power Tent"
- 2nd Place Winner - Team Barracuda Innovations, "Power Pad"
- 3rd Place Winner - Team SAE++, "TIG Automatic Feed Pen"
Congratulations to the winners and to all the ENME 472 participants!
