About 130 student teams will display their creativity at greatly expanded “Senior Design Showcase” next week

Want to see student creativity on display?

If the answer is “yes,” you have the opportunity on April 25 when 130 teams from all academic disciplines in the Tickle College of Engineering at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville will display ideas on which they have worked all year.

“The Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Biomedical Engineering (MABE) have hosted the event for several years,” Keith Stanfill, Edwards Assistant Dean and Director of Integrated Engineering Design for the Tickle College, said.

Last year’s event featured 43 projects, either prototypes or posters. The number has tripled for 2019 with about 130 teams expected to participate.

“It’s a showcase and celebration of the students’ work,” Stanfill said. “All are undergraduate seniors.”

Here’s a link to this year’s “Senior Design Showcase” that also includes a registration link for the event that runs from 1 to 4 p.m. at Thompson-Boling Arena.

“We invite the public to come and see the creativity on display,” Stanfill said.

Ahead of the showcase, the College has been featuring several of the projects in a weekly email blast. Here are three of them:

  • Five students who are designing a section of a three-mile greenway in Gatlinburg (click here);
  • A student team working with Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center on a project to streamline processes and implement best practices (click here); and
  • A project to develop barriers on the Natchez Trace Parkway Bridge that is a frequent site of suicides (click here).
