Spring 2019 Capstone Design Showcase set for April 25

Students present their projects at Capstone Design Showcase
An accident reconstruction vehicle for the Colorado Highway Patrol, a 3D-printed habitat for astronauts on Mars and a public restroom for the Mount Everest trekking route are among the student design projects that will be on display at this spring's Capstone@Mines Design Showcase.
The annual event - the culmination of a yearlong client-driven design experience for seniors - will be from 9 to 11 a.m. April 25 at Lockridge Arena. 
More than 55 student teams from Mines' civil, electrical, mechanical and environmental engineering departments will display their projects, all designed to tackle real-world challenges faced by industry, government agencies and community organizations.
Other projects this semester include:
  • Bio-Itza Eco-Cottages 
  • Adapted Fly Fishing System for Quad/Tetra Users 
  • Multi-Copter Supply Aircraft
  • Water Drone
  • Water Quality & Flow Measurements
  • Ultra-Sonic Metals Printer 
First-, second- and third-place prizes will be awarded, as well as recognitions for innovation, societal impact, proof of concept and professionalism. A pair of noise-canceling headphones designed for a former state trooper who suffered a traumatic brain injury took the event's top honors last semester.
