Using brainwaves to compose music. A smart boat that assists with ocean search-and-rescue efforts. Low-cost ventilators to help during COVID-19. A mobile app that lets you open the door for your pet when you're not home. Predictive inventory management. A laser guitar. Even an ultrasonic petri-dish bubble popper to help scientists. You can see these student-made innovations and so much more in a virtual showcase of projects created by teams of graduating seniors of the UCF College of Engineering and Computer Science.
The Virtual Fall 2020 Senior Design Showcase will feature videos and descriptions of all 80+ projects on a webpage that will go live on Dec. 2.
More than 280 students have worked their entire senior year to bring their innovations to fruition -- an accomplishment made more remarkable given the constraints of virtual team collaboration. The projects, which demonstrate students' knowledge and application of engineering and advanced computing concepts, provide solutions to real-world problems, many of which are industry-sponsored.
Assistive drones, laser technology, solar-powered systems, robotics, computer apps, streamlined industrial solutions and so much more will be showcased.
