Through a partnership with SLU’s Center for Aviation Safety Research (CASR) and Williams Aerospace, the University will research and train industry on technologies that improve national defense, scientific research, disaster relief, public safety and technological development.
Parks College students recently showcased their research projects they developed as part of their senior design capstone course. Out of the 33 senior design projects, one was chosen as being the best among the six departmental programs: Aerospace, Mechanical, Electrical, Computer and Biomedical Engineering as well as Physics.
Faculty in the electrical and computer engineering department at Saint Louis University are collaborating across the University to develop solutions for alternative energy sources. One project engineering students and faculty worked on was a solar golf cart, designed to run off energy generated from a solar panel on top of the cart.
This event will highlight aerospace, biomedical, electrical and computer and mechanical engineering projects from the Senior Design capstone course in the Spring 2012 semester. Each poster will be presented for discussion and questions.
