The winners of the Michigan Tech Undergraduate Expo Awards have been posted. Congratulations to all the winners.
The Undergraduate Expo highlights hands-on, discovery-based learning at Michigan Tech. Nearly one thousand students in Enterprise and Senior Design teams showcase their work and compete for awards. A panel of judges, made up of corporate representatives and Michigan Tech staff and faculty members, critique the projects. Many of them are sponsored by industry, which allows students to gain valuable experience through competition at the Expo, as well as direct exposure to real industrial problems. The Expo is a combined effort of the College of Engineering and the Institute for Leadership and Innovation.
The HEV mobile laboratory was on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. On the labs first trip outside the state, United States Senator Carl Levin stopped by to give the students and their work a stamp of approval. “It may be located the Upper Peninsula, but all of Michigan has been impacted by it. Tens of thousands of engineers have come out of Michigan Tech,” said Sen. Levin. Michigan Tech Staff and faculty from four programs participated in the National Transportation Workforce Summit in Washington, DC, April 24 to 26.
The Union filled up early as crowds, judges, media and local school children checked out the inventive creativity on display.
