Senior Design Conference to be hosted virtually

Posted on

The annual Senior Design Conference of the Frank H. Dotterweich College of Engineering at Texas A&M University-Kingsville will be available online for a second year.


The conference will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, April 23, through Blackboard Collaborate.


The Senior Design Conference showcases student capstone projects in architectural, chemical, civil, environmental, electrical, mechanical and natural gas engineering. Computer science projects also are included.


Austin McCoy, Director of the Javelina Engineering Student Success Center, said the purpose of the conference is the final yearlong course that engineering students are required to take to satisfy ABET student outcomes and ensure that students are being taught important engineering topics.


“This conference teaches them to work as a team and how important that translates out to the workforce,” McCoy said. “This conference is a great professional event that exposes students to research and expects students to use aspects and  engineering knowledge they have been taught while here at Texas A&M-Kingsville.”


There will be seven parallel sessions with several judges to evaluate the oral presentation and the technical merits of the senior design project using a standard rubric. The scores assigned by judges will be used to select the best projects for cash awards.
