The UTC College of Engineering and Computer Science Second Annual Design and Research Project Showcase will feature assistive technology and senior design projects including the MiniBaja vehicle and the Steel Bridge. The showcase will be held Tuesday, April 22, 4-6 p.m. on the 4th floor of the UTC Engineering, Math, and Computer Science building, corner of Vine and Palmetto Streets. The public is welcome.

Among the first year design projects which focus on Assistive Technology will be:

  • a device to strengthen climbing skills of children with disabilities at a local therapy clinic;
  • a bicycle ride-along for a five year old boy who has Cerebral Palsy—Christopher’s mom wants to take him on bike rides and he needs supported seating.
