More than 35 teams of Rochester Institute of Technology engineering students will present multidisciplinary senior-design projects 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. this Friday, May 18.

Each project is categorized into one of six tracks, including:

  • Assistive devices and biotechnology
  • Aerospace systems and technologies
  • Vehicle systems and technologies
  • Systems and controls technologies
  • Sustainable design and product development
  • Printing and imaging systems technologies

Each team will describe its project in formal 30-minute presentations. In addition, one-on-one sessions with students will be available during a poster session 11 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Kate Gleason College of Engineering Design Center.

Some projects include: a wind-turbine-powered walkway light, an unmanned aerial vehicle imaging platform, an audio-based vehicle navigation system, an audible memo board, a solar-powered water pasteurizer, an ultraviolet water-disinfection device, a remote-controlled home entry system, an ergonomic chair to assist those with physical disabilities in getting into and out of a pool, and more.

Presentations, open to all, will be in RIT’s Xerox Auditorium in the James E. Gleason Building and in rooms 2140 and 2240 of the Louise M. Slaughter Building.
