A UAB Engineering tradition will resume this week when student teams put their senior design projects on display for the public at two separate “media day” events.

The first event will take place in the Education-Engineering Complex lobby on Thursday, April 21 from 10 a.m. until noon and will feature 14 different projects by teams from the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering.

The next day, the Department of Biomedical Engineering will give formal presentations at 1 p.m. of 10 different projects in EEC 155.
