First-year spotlight on design

3D-printed trophyFall 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. Here's a sample of 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.
