Saginaw Valley State University engineering students will display their senior projects during the Summer Engineering Symposium Friday, Aug. 17. Over the past year, the students have worked with a variety of engineering industry partners to develop fully working prototypes.
All SVSU mechanical engineering majors are required to collaborate with outside clients or university organizations as part of their senior projects.
There will be 37 students – all mechanical engineering majors – presenting their projects for six different companies: Duro-Last, Huhtamaki, Kremin, the Millet Center (part of the Saginaw Intermediate School District), Motiv and Nexteer Automotive.
The eight teams of students' projects include a wheelchair basketball shooter, a bowling automated ball quality control check, a plastics cup stack dispenser, an auto electric home gym and a roofing automated pull tester.
From 10 a.m. to noon, the students will present posters on their projects and show live prototype demonstrations in Pioneer Hall. The symposium is free and open to the public.
