Real-life solutions for real-life problems is one of the goals for student projects being presented at the upcoming Tech Symposium in the Public Library downtown.
“I’m extremely proud of our College of Engineering and Computer Science students who have applied what they have learned in classroom to solve real-world problems, says Daniel Pack, dean of the college. “The 120-plus projects that will be on display represent solutions for the problems we face today and advancement in technologies and innovations in preparation of future challenges.
“By participating in applied research, our students are better prepared to enter the workforce or advanced studies as collaborative and creative thinkers.”
Categories for the projects are: freshmen design, undergraduate research, senior capstone and graduate research.Projects will be on display throughout the library and outside, including the Baja Car, Concrete Canoe and Steel Bridge. Some projects will have interactive components.
About 200 juniors and seniors from Hamilton County Schools are attending the event.
