Discover Engineering Class Presentations at UD Senior Engineering Design Showcase
This day-long conference showcases the University's Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering seniors, along with other engineering disciplines through projects addressing the Grand Challenges of Engineering. Padua students were challenge to create solutions to a healthcare issue. During their semester-long class, they designed, developed, and built solutions wi th the assistance and use of the Design Lab at UD.
Students presented their processes and prototypes at the Engineering Design presentations along with UD senior engineering students, who were judged by industry and academic representatives. Padua students were praised for their keen insight and excellent presentation skills.
Upon final judging, the team of Rachel Delate, Maria Smith, and Alanna Socha were chosen as the high school level winners! One judge commended this group on its ability to use a perspective that no other team addressed: "Their ability to look beyond the obvious and take into consideration the user was well above what I had expected. I was very pleasantly impressed with their presentation."
