BUFFALO, N.Y. – Improving a device that a Lockport company
uses to move hazardous chemicals. Developing a tool that will help
an Olean-based manufacturer reduce production costs.
Those are just two examples of projects that University at
Buffalo engineering students performed during their senior design
course this semester that will be on display Friday afternoon, May
9, at Davis Hall on North Campus.
The UB Engineering Senior Design Expo will feature dozens of
students and include information on nearly 80 projects, many of
which involve local businesses.
“This event is a chance for our students to present their
work to a broad audience inclusive of fellow students, faculty and
industry partners, while testing their technical thinking and
communication skills,” said Andrew Olewnik, director of
experiential learning in the School of Engineering and Applied
Sciences. “It’s also an opportunity to thank our
industry sponsors and encourage discussion that continues to build
opportunities for collaboration.”
