The Design Expo is an annual celebration of the culmination of Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering Capstone Design. The Expo provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate the results of their year-long design projects. It also provides an opportunity for the campus community, and the public, to observe the fine work done by our students.

Twenty-one projects from one hundred and two mechanical & mechatronic engineering seniors will be on display from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM on the O’Connell South Veranda.
