First-year Spotlight on Design
Fall term engineering/computer science students enrolled in Basic Engineering (BE) 1200 Engineering Design 1 exhibit their engineered group projects in a fun interactive First Year Spotlight on Design event. Fellow students, BE 1200 students' family members, and local high schools/community members are invited to interact with the groups, view their projects, and vote for their favorite engineered design. The winning team has bragging rights to our 3D-printed trophy, and their project design lives in our glass case.
Fall 2019 was our inaugural First Year Spotlight on Design event; 275 first-year students created 70 projects. Sample of the team project topics: pizza delivery drone; smart home; folding chair; adjustable wrench; mechanical hand; toy car; vise-grip pliers; racing drone; 2D hydrocephalus model
BE 1200 is a great way to start your engineering experience, and this event is a fun way to showcase your engineering skills!
