Teams of fourth-year Nanotechnology Engineering students presented the results of their Capstone Design projects at the program’s Design Symposium on March 24, 2017. Capstone Design challenges students to work in teams, applying the skills and knowledge they learned through their undergraduate degree, to conceptualize and design a solution to a real-world problem.
Projects were categorized within the four themes of study: nanobiotechnology & biomedical systems; MEMs & nanofluidics; nanofunctional materials; and nanoelectronics & photonics. The class of 2017 presented a variety of interesting and useful projects to the public and a panel of judges that included faculty, lab instructors and teaching assistants. The teams with the best poster and prototype demos were awarded prizes for their achievements.
