The Department of Computer Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology will unveil new student engineering designs during a technology demonstration, 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 1. The event is part of the department’s senior design program, which requires all fifth-year students to design and build devices or equipment related to a computer engineering discipline. This year, projects include a digital pinball machine, an automatic golf putter and an autonomous mail carrier.

The demonstrations are being held in the Erdle Commons lobby of the James E. Gleason Engineering Building and include opportunities to speak with students and professors involved with each project.
