For more than 100 first-year students and a class of civil engineering seniors, the fall 2020 semester ended with virtual expos through which they shared final projects.
The fall Capstone Design Expo featured three civil engineering capstone projects including the design and infrastructure development of a new shop structure for the Andrick Ponds State Wildlife Area; the study, survey, analysis, and design of infrastructure improvements to a four-block segment of Main Street in Platteville, and the restoration of Lone Tree Creek throughCentennial Center Park. The expo winner, based on the evaluations of industry judges, is the Lone Tree Creek restoration project. Team members will receive a prize of $1,000, thanks to the generous support of donors Don and Karen White.
The fall First-Year Design Expo featured 39 projects where student teams discovered and defined an original problem of their choosing, and then developed and delivered a prototype representing their best ideas as to a solution. Winners in four categories were selected by the instructional team and are listed below:
Congratulations to everyone who participated in the virtual expos. We look forward to the next round of Expos in May 2021.
