For the past several months engineering teams from the University of St. Thomas have been challenged by regional companies and non-profits to tackle some very difficult problems.  From new medical devices to sensors, from alternative energy to improved manufacturing systems, the teams will have their working prototypes on display.  If you haven't seen it before, its worth a trip.  If you've seen it before, there are 13 new projects and 62 amazing senior engineers who will remind you that the seeds of technical leadership in the region start at St. Thomas.  See you here!

From small start-ups to the largest companies in the Twin Cities, all find value in the thousands of hours of work put into each project.   And the students shine in seeing their ideas at first fail and then come to fruition in the real world.  

See the 2011 Senior Design Brochure to read more information about each of the projects.   The event has been moved to the Frey Science and Engineering Complex Atrium in the O'Shaughnessy Science Building (see map for details).
