Engineering Expo slated
Spotlight on junior and senior projects
A team of Trine University civil engineers will showcase their state design competition project during Trine’s seventh annual Engineering Design Expo from 1-3 p.m. on Friday, May 1 in Fawick Hall. The public and students involved in Trine’s Spring Frenzy visit day may browse through numerous senior engineering design projects on the first and second floors.
Trine students in partnership with local businesses and manufacturers have created many creative engineering solutions. The team of Adam Clark, Curt Daniels, and Kevin Hintz presented their senior project, “Harcourt-Williams Street Roundabout Study in Angola, Ind.,” in a state-wide design competition conducted by the Indiana section of the American Society of Civil Engineers in Carmel, Ind. on March 26. After pitting their project against those from University of Evansville, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, University of Notre Dame and Purdue, the Trine team missed first place by a single point.
Among many other interesting projects available to view will be a coal-to-methanol project by Marklee Lockie and Craig Wiley, which earned the 2008 national Safety and Chemical Engineering Education’s Safety in Design Award; the “Trine Spine” by Ben Gadomski, Richard Skelton, Matthew Turner, and Richard Witte, which models the movement of the human spine; a waterslide project by Garrett Day, Jordan Eldridge, and Kyle Silveus for the Lake James Christian Assembly; and a runner’s dashboard by Jaron Bernath, Joshua Eimiller, Trevor Fallis, Kyle O’Brien, and Clint Scott, which helps runners track pace and distance.
Students will discuss their projects with visitors, and faculty and manufacturing partners will be on hand at the displays to provide information.
