A hydroponic garden for urban areas, an innovative clothes dryer that uses vacuum technology to remove moisture and a machine that can learn to preserve privacy are among the projects Virginia Commonwealth University students will present at the VCU College of Engineering’s annual Capstone Design Expo.
The event, which showcases engineering students’ innovative research and design prototypes, will be held Friday, April 28, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Stuart C. Siegel Center, 1200 W. Broad St. The expo is free and open to the public.
The VCU College of Engineering Capstone Design Expo is the college’s largest student event of the year and showcases more than 90 student projects and presentations, the result of more than eight months of work between students, sponsors and faculty advisers. The prototypes and inventions on display seek to offer solutions that will have a lasting impact on society and humankind.
Awards will be presented for best project per department, the best industrial project and the Dean's Choice Award. Attendees will vote on the People’s Choice Award.
In addition to Capstone Design course work, the expo will feature projects from the Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) teams.
