Cal Poly Pomona engineering students who have labored on rigorous projects throughout the year will showcase their work during the Engineering Projects Symposium on Friday, May 30, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., in the Engineering Complex (Buildings 9 and 17).
The symposium gives students an opportunity to exhibit results of individual and team-based efforts to faculty, industry representatives, other students and guests. This is a significant learning experience stressing multidisciplinary challenges, teamwork, organization and communication ? important elements in an engineering career.
About 400 students will take part in nearly 80 projects, including some real-life challenges funded by companies. Examples of presentation topics include: an analysis of traffic conditions between Cal Poly Pomona and the 57 Freeway at Temple Ave.; the design and selection of materials for hip joint prosthesis; and the design of a mini-hydro plant for the city of Phelan.
