Tech Students Engineer Solutions During 2003 Design Fair
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology 2003 Design Fair will feature dozens of senior projects from various fields of engineering and computer science. The event, free and open to the public, will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, in the Surbeck Student Center Ballroom.
Projects on display will include: Mini-Indy, Mini-Baja and Human Powered vehicles, Friction Stir Welding, Laser Deposition, Arsenic Recovery, Staff Attendance Manager, IEEE Competition Robot, Remediation of Ground Water, Remote Sensing Balloon, Heat Transfer Nanofluids and many others.
This campus-wide celebration of technical design showcases projects from more than 100 students in the following departments: Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Geological Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering and Mining Engineering. Some of the projects are sponsored by private industry and government agencies.
The design method is critical to technological advancement. It is the creative process used to develop a product or process that address a customer need. Understanding and utilizing the design method are important components of engineering and computer science education.
The Design Fair provides an opportunity for the general public to see the results when South Dakota Tech students apply the creative process in engineering and computer science projects. Student designers will be on hand to explain their projects. Middle and senior high school students are particularly encouraged to attend.
For information, call Dr. Chris Jenkins at 394-2406.
