Senior Design Project Team Won the First Place at COE Annual Poster Competition

I have been serving as a small group adviser of a group of five senior students on a capstone design project that is collaboratively conducted between another team of five senor EE students and Tyson Foods Inc. The project is to design a high-fidelity prototype of a conveyor system equipped with barcode scanning technique to automatically sort and transport packages to different destinations. In the 2nd annual Engineering Design Poster Competition held by the College of Engineering at the UA, our senior design team won the FIRST place. Congratulations to the them! Great team work.

The ME team stands with me on the back: Thomas Brown, Macario Blyden, Colby Breithaupt, Eindra New, and William Woodward
