Colorado State University engineering students will showcase their projects and host activities for the university and Fort Collins communities as part of Engineering Days April 19. The theme for this year’s annual event is "Built on a World of Ideas." More than 60 displays will represent projects ranging from satellites to robotics to land development issues.
Student project displays will take place from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Main Ballroom of the Lory Student Center. An awards reception and ceremony will follow at 7 p.m. in the North Ballroom of the Lory Student Center. Both events are free and open to the public.
Engineering Days will feature design projects, a rock climbing wall, a formula SAE race car, a fire-fighting robot and a variety of other fun and educational student demonstrations. On display will be the student-designed snowmobile that recently won the clean emissions portion of the national Clean Snowmobile Challenge. Additionally, engineering students will showcase their award-winning steel bridge, concrete canoe, chemical car, walking machine and human-powered vehicle designs.
A panel of judges from the engineering industry will be on hand to evaluate student projects. Awards will be presented to those who have submitted the most outstanding work.
