Northrop Grumman Engineering and Science Student Design Showcase Set for April 3

MELBOURNE, FLA. — Continuing an annual tradition, Florida Institute of Technology College of Engineering and College of Science student teams will display
their finished design projects on Friday, April 3, from noon to 4 p.m. More than 90 projects will make up the newly named Northrop Grumman Engineering and
Science Student Design Showcase at the Charles and Ruth Clemente Center. The community is invited to attend.

For more than four decades, Florida Tech engineering and science students have been required to complete a hands-on, detailed senior project before
graduation. Now, a generous $1 million endowment gift from Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE:NOC) made earlier this year is underwriting the students’
work. Northrop Grumman officials will also present a special “Best in Show” prize.

Engineering projects include a hybrid race car and a “Green Panther” car that runs on clean ethanol, rockets, satellites, wireless house control systems
and a concrete canoe. Science efforts include applying a high energy physics technology for revealing potential nuclear contraband in cargo containers.

Florida Tech engineering seniors conceive, design and implement their projects, write a description, document requirements and gain hands-on experience.
The student project simulates a real-world work environment challenge in a variety of engineering and science areas. The students apply theory, think
creatively and develop practical skills, such as teamwork, professionalism and leadership.

The Clemente Center is located on University Boulevard near the corner of Babcock Street. For more information, call (321) 674-8020.
