Senior Design students recently showed off their creations to fellow students, faculty and local media. Their final year of school is dedicated to the hands-on practical application of everything they learned at the UAB School of Engineering. The year-long assignment of designing and engineering a project from start to finish is invaluable real-world experience. Check out the Flickr slide show of the event!
Egg-ceptional students from across the state descended on the campus of UAB for the 22nd Annual Brent Newman Memorial Egg Drop Contest. The event sponsored by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) drew hundreds of egg-static students. Video cameras from the UAB School of Engineering captured these egg-cellent students in an egg-streme competition to egg-cel.
Out of more than 50 teams of engineering students from across the world - UAB students place 3rd in the Baja SAE Birmingham 2011! The three-day event held in Cullman County featured teams from as far away as Korea and as near as Auburn. The event lets students put all-terrain vehicles they built from scratch in a series of tests including acceleration, pulling and maneuvering through a water course without sinking. As you can tell by the picture of the 32 car - if there was a mud category UAB would have been 1st in a landslide!
