Saginaw Valley State University will host its annual fall Engineering Symposium Friday, Dec. 8.

During the event, 29 mechanical engineering students will demonstrate their practical problem-solving abilities as shown through their senior projects. All SVSU mechanical engineering majors are required to collaborate with outside clients or university organizations as part of the senior projects.

Eight teams of students took on the task of prototype production and technological engineering for their designated client. The regional organizations and manufacturers being represented are B&P Littleford, the Bay Port Chamber of Commerce, Huhtamaki Group, Inspire Outcomes LLC, Kremin Inc., Nexteer Automotive, and SVSU's Boutell Memorial Greenhouse.

The Engineering Symposium will begin with poster presentations in SVSU’s Pioneer Hall from 10 a.m. to noon when the SVSU engineering students will be available to discuss their projects with attendees. The event is free and open to the public.
