At the Nanotechnology Engineering Capstone Design Symposium on March 16, 2018, a panel of judges bestowed awards on three teams of NE students for their demonstration of excellence in innovation, prototype development and potential for successful implementation, as well as their ability to communicate the technical aspects of their project. This year’s award winners are on their way towards improving the way marijuana impairment is measured, disease is detected, and pipeline leaks are identified.
