College of Engineering Student Design and Innovation Day

Danto Engineering Development Center
Students who wish to participate - follow these instructions (College of Engineering students only). The Wayne State University College of Engineering, invites you the second annual Student Design and Innovation Day on Tuesday, May 3. This event showcases the work of talented students, from senior capstone projects to research team endeavors with industry and community relevance. These projects combine technical engineering excellence and creative design, often with an interdisciplinary approach. The College of Engineering ranks in the top 30 percent of all engineering programs in the nation in research expenditures, according to the National Science Foundation. We place a strong emphasis on student — particularly undergraduate — research. Supervised by top-tier faculty members, our student capstone and research teams produce high-quality outcomes. Some of these projects were directed and sponsored by partner companies, resulting in advancements to technologies, processes and methods. We want to open our doors to give industry and the community an opportunity to view the diverse range and capabilities of our student research teams. Many projects from each of our eight departments will be on display here at our college in Midtown Detroit. To view past projects, visit our Design Day website.  View a map of campus and directions and parking information.
