Design Expo

The Design Expo is a biannual 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.
