Nebraska Engineering’s Senior Design Showcase is May 6 | Nebraska today

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Engineering’s 2022 Senior Design Showcase, Nebraska’s premier undergraduate engineering student design event, will be held from 1-3:30 p.m. on Friday, May 6 at the Nebraska Innovation Campus Conference Center.

The event will feature new and innovative projects from 67 graduate student teams from across the college. Their projects reflect professional challenges, environments and, in some cases, collaborations with industry clients to develop products and devices that could have immediate impacts.

Among the projects on display are:

  • Four engineers reuse spent coffee grounds to create dimethyl ether – a sustainable and economically sound green fuel that reduces carbon emissions. NOPEx, hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide.
  • The design of a green and sustainable stormwater management system for the Douglas County Environmental Services building in Omaha, with natural filtration of pollutants using plants.
  • A redesign of a pneumatic leg press training machine used by multiple sclerosis patients to include an emergency pressure release system and an adjustable chair.
  • A cross-platform mobile and web application that functions as both a dual-channel function generator and an oscilloscope for use in a course on advanced embedded systems; and
  • A virtual reality app that allows prospective Husker students to tour Memorial Stadium and explore the School of Computer Science’s research and engineering principles.

Team members will be on hand to demonstrate and discuss their projects. Their stands will be in rooms A and B on the first floor and in the banquet hall on the second floor. Guests are encouraged to vote for their favorite project at the People’s Choice Award voting station in the banquet hall.
