Student teams at the University's Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have been partnering with local companies and institutions over the past year to solve real-world engineering problems.
Imagine charging your cell phone just by walking. Or a specially-designed bicycle that allows amputees and people recovering from strokes to steer and change gears. Those innovations are among the many to be featured on Thursday, May 3, at the annual Hajim School Design Day. Visit Goergen Hall between 12-2 p.m to see the projects in action.
Biomedical engineering students Catherine Marando ’12, Kimberly Ornell ’12, Margaret Fettis ’12, Zachary Milstone ’12, and Garrett Goss ’12 test out their "FloMaR" project, a device that measures and records surgical IV fluid administration without a pump.
Silvia Perucchio ’12 works on her senior design project, a portable device that harvests mechanical energy during human motion and converts it into enough electricity to charge a cell phone using an electromagnetic generator.
