Vanderbilt Senior Engineering Design Day
Name: Vanderbilt Senior Engineering Design Day
Date: April 24, 2017
Time: 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM CDT
Dozens of senior design projects will be on display throughout the large Vanderbilt Student Life Center ballroom during this annual event, which is open to the public. Interdisciplinary teams in biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering collaborated with sponsors over two semesters to produce their work. Among the projects: A device to block the noise of medical alarms for ICU patients; a monitor that detects and measures human interactions with infants in the NICU; ballistic vests with biosensors for police officers; a custom apparatus for aerial dancers; a two-wheel dynamic center of gravity wheelchair; an ankle exoskeleton that transfers energy back to the user; and an over-under material handling system to minimize lost time and maximize efficiency on an assembly line.
