WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – With the spring semester wrapping up, hundreds of Purdue seniors showed off their final work as part of an innovation competition.
More than 250 graduating students presented their work at the Mechanical Engineering Building.
The competition was part of a semester long class, in which students were asked to come up with an innovative way to complete a task.
Associate Professor John Starkey said the competition is a culmination of everything they’ve learned in their undergraduate career.
“The day is really the closure it’s the capstone of the capstone course. The students have worked all semester going all the way from a problem statement to a final product and they’re done,” said Starkey.
Students were teamed in groups of five to complete the project. Each project was judged, with awards going to the first through fourth place teams.
