UPEI will showcase the best in student sustainable engineering today at the annual Student Design Expo and Awards ceremony.

It will be hosted by the university’s faculty of sustainable design engineering.

Projects will be set up for viewing at various stations around the first floor of the Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering Building. Each project is the result of a collaboration between the students and an industry or community partner.

Students were tasked with designing and creating solutions to their partners’ unique challenges.

The public component of the expo begins with a short ceremony at 1 p.m. Projects are available for viewing through the afternoon with the award ceremony beginning at 4 p.m. and a brief panel discussion about opportunities for design engineering graduates getting underway at 4:30 p.m.

Dozens of projects will be on display from students in all four years of the undergraduate program.

They range in scope from advanced optical imaging for use in national defence technology to technology to capture and re-use energy used to cook lobster in a commercial cannery.
