DAVIS, Calif.; May 30, 2017 – The UC Davis College of Engineering is pleased to share with the campus community the efforts of the senior design teams and engineering clubs at the 2017 Engineering Design Showcase. The event will take place from 2 – 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 8, at the UC Davis ARC Pavilion

The Design Showcase is a culminating senior experience that gives engineering students the opportunity to engineer solutions to a variety of problems and needs. Students have dedicated hours of drafting, modeling, prototyping, testing, and analysis to complete these projects on top of an already rigorous course curriculum. This year’s event includes 137 teams across the college’s eight departments. Student projects address a wide range of real-world issues, with common themes that include manufacturing and process improvement, and sustainability.
