On Thursday, April 30, 2015 the School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering hosted the annual Capstone Senior Design Poster Fair in Devon Energy Hall and the ExxonMobil Lawrence G. Rawl Engineering Practice Facility. A total of 28 senior teams participated in the poster fair. These student groups have been working on their capstone research throughout their senior year. Students presented their posters to a group of judges who later selected the outstanding teams in each category. The categories consisted of aerospace engineering, prototype design, studies, testing, interdisciplinary and vehicle design. Click here to see the project summaries.
