JB Speed School of Engineering students are developing products that will, ideally, one day be used and sold by companies. Current seniors spend the year developing a product that showcases what they have learned in their engineering courses here at UofL.
Those products are then displayed during the Engineering Design and Innovation Showcase, attended by members of the community at the end of the spring semester. Speed Smart toilets and sensor sensitive shower doors are a few of the products the students produced this year.
“This (event) really helped integrate it all and give a better picture of how everything we’ve learned in school can actually be applied to the real world,” said Emily Snyder, engineering student.
That is exactly the point, according to Speed School Dean Emmanuel Collins.
“As a Speed School, our product is our students and how well we train them to do real engineering design,” he said.
