Winter 2017 Design Expo
The College of Engineering Design Expo is held twice a year to provide a public forum for engineering students to demonstrate applications of their studies to real-life needs. Students gain valuable experience by presenting their work.
Through this venue, the greater University community and general public has the opportunity to learn how Michigan's students are contributing in significant ways to solving major technology challenges across various disciplines.
These student projects consist of internal University of Michigan projects, non-profit community projects and industry-sponsored projects. Most of these projects are part of Senior Design Project Courses, but other project groups are welcome and encouraged to participate.
The goal of the Undergraduate Engineering Office is to have participation from all departments within the College of Engineering (and eventually across university schools and colleges) to promote cross-disciplinary cooperation as well as high-school outreach.
Industry sponsors, have been a large part of promoting this within the college through sponsorship of projects and as well as monetary support of the event itself.
