Design Day Showcases Student Talent
Engineering Design Day, held December 6 and 7 at the MSU Union, showcased MSU Engineering student projects. The departments of Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering participated. Teams of students presented capstone course projects to the public and answered questions about their work.
A panel of judges evaluated projects on criteria that included project video quality, technical challenge, and overall performance. Mike Drazan (Toro Company), Naim Falandino (CompuWare), Matt Mutka (MSU), Kevin Ohl (Crowe Chizek), Rick Rose (Chrysler), and Marty Strickler (Rose Packing Company) served as judges.
