– Florida Tech College of Engineering students team up to create design projects required for a Bachelor of Science degree in their chosen field. On April
14 they’ll exhibit over 100 of these projects in the Student Design Showcase, at the Charles and Ruth Clemente Center. The community is invited to view the
exhibits from 1 to 4 p.m.
Projects include the radio-controlled autonomous aircraft, formula car, module robotic vehicle, computer visualizations, pedestrian bridge, hydrogen
powered jet boat, hydrogen production reactor and concrete canoe. Additionally, some of the best and brightest middle- and high school students from
Brevard and surrounding counties have been invited to participate in the showcase and display their science fair projects.
Florida Tech seniors conceive, design and implement their project, write a description, document the requirements and gain hands-on experience. Most
students find that these projects make education fun.
The student project simulates a real-world work environment challenge in a variety of engineering fields. The students apply theory, think creatively and
develop practical skills, such as teamwork, professionalism and leadership.
The Clemente Center is located on University Blvd., near the corner of Babcock St.
Florida Tech’s College of Engineering offers bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in aerospace, chemical, civil, computer, mechanical, electrical and
ocean engineering as well as computer science, oceanography and the environmental sciences, including meteorology. Master’s degrees are available in
computer information systems, software engineering, environmental resources management, coastal zone management and engineering management. Programs in
information systems, software development and meteorology are available, leading to a bachelor’s degree.
