Undergraduate students in the Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering must produce a comprehensive design project during their senior year—a task which allows them to utilize all the skills, tools and knowledge they have received during their studies at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.

            “The Design and Research Conference provides us with a chance to showcase our students and their wonderful work they do to alumni, the community and potential employers,” said Dr. Stephan Nix, dean of the Dotterweich College of Engineering.

Presentations will go on concurrently from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Senior design projects and graduate and undergraduate student research posters will be on display from 11 a.m. to noon.
