ALLIANCE, Ohio – Students at the University of Mount Union will showcase their civil and mechanical engineering projects at the University of Mount Union’s second annual Engineering and Entrepreneurship Design Expo on Thursday, April 26 in the Engineering and Business Building on Mount Union’s campus.
Some projects that will be featured include an automatic feeding dog bowl, a hole saw dynamometer, and a robotic football quarterback and wide receiver. These robots will have competed in the Intercollegiate Robotic Football Competition.
Additional projects include a heated recovery roller, a hops harvester, and an off-road vehicle. The students will have used the off-road vehicle in the intercollegiate Baja competition from the Society of Automotive Engineers.
Students will also give a presentation about their global experience project. Previously, the engineering department worked with a small school in Belize. Students and faculty are redesigning the school’s water supply system by installing an automatic chlorinator and fixing wells.
The Expo presents an opportunity to see the products of the engineering students’ talent and hard work. The event is free and open to the public.
