Student Project Showcase
May 10, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
The SyracuseCoE Student Project Showcase will celebrate work performed by students during the last year to solve problems posed by companies. Attendees can meet students who performed the projects and the faculty members who supervised their work, learn about their projects and find out how their companies can participate in similar projects next year.
The event will showcase industry-driven student projects performed as part of four different programs:
- Mechanical Engineering (ME) Capstone Design: The Mechanical Engineering program at Syracuse University piloted a new approach to the two-semester “Capstone Design” sequence that undergraduates must complete in their final year to graduate. The approach invited companies to specify a problem to be solved; in return, participating companies received: all deliverables including ownership of intellectual property, more than 1,200 hours of student design work, and 40 hours of technical advice from faculty members.
- Certificate of Advanced Study in Sustainable Enterprise (CASSE): CASSE is a Certificate of Advanced Studies that is available for graduate students who are enrolled in a broad variety of degree programs at Syracuse University (SU) and at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF). The CASSE capstone course consists of a semester-long strategic engagement between small teams of graduate students (3-4 per team) and companies, addressing an applied sustainability-focused business problem.
- Syracuse University Industrial Assessment Center (IAC): The SU IAC is one of 24 centers across the country supported by the U.S. Department of Energy. IACs train undergraduate and graduate students to assist small manufacturing firms achieve savings based on reducing energy use, minimizing waste streams, optimizing productivity and increases in overall efficiency.
- AM-TEC Analysis and Design Center (ADC): As part of a four-year initiative to strengthen Central New York’s regional cluster of Advanced Manufacturers of Thermal and Environmental Controls (AM-TEC), SyracuseCoE developed the Analysis and Design Center (ADC), in which students assisted AM-TEC companies in product development by performing simulations using Computational Fluid Dynamics and Finite-Element Analysis software.
We encourage you to join us and share this invitation with others in your organization who might be interested in learning more about how to engage students to address organizational challenges.
Refreshments will be available, including graduation cake! Join us!
