LEWISBURG, Pa. — The College of Engineering at Bucknell University will host a series of events showcasing senior engineering design projects.

Every graduating engineer takes part in a final "Senior Design" experience, resulting in a plan, device, innovation, or design to meet the needs of a client, according to Margot Vigeant, Associate Dean of the College of Engineering and Professor of Chemical Engineering.

"This year, students have designed and built a mini-baja car, new medical devices, useful apps, sustainable land-use plans, and soft- and hardware to support citizen science.

"They have also investigated processes to help local small businesses make their products more cost-effectively.  Students will be available to discuss their work and will even demonstrate many of their prototypes." she said

The schedule of presentations open to the general public are:
