Engineering Design Day Results 2014

On May 6th, 2014 the teams of students who worked hard to present their work on the design day, got their final results. UA Engineering seniors competed for more than $13,000 in industry-sponsored prizes.


The Interdisciplinary Engineering Design Program at the University of
Arizona allows teams of engineering students to work directly with
industry and faculty on real-life projects. Seniors from across the
College of Engineering work in multidisciplinary teams to solve design
problems identified by industry partners, faculty, and student clubs.
This activity culminates in the annual Engineering Design Day in early
May, when all teams exhibit their work to the public and external
judges. See the Design Day Guide Book for a full list of projects on display at Engineering Design Day 2014.

UA Engineering Professor is recognized as a top researcher at

Professor Cholik Chan is acknowledged in the
article recognizing the compelling work of professors at some of the top
research universities in the United States. The article recognizes
faculty from universities across the U.S. that are designated as having
high or very high research activity on the Carnegie Classification of
Institutions of Higher Education.  Dr. Chan centers his work on heat
transfer, materials processing, and boundary element methods. He’s been
awarded for leadership, as well as his research.

UA Engineering Leads $5.5M DOE Project to Create Solar Energy

Peiwen "Perry" Li will be the principal investigator on this project
where his team and the teams from Georgia Tech and ASU Poly will be
working together to find cost effective solar energy. Their focus will
include new materials and fluids that optimize the effective generation
and logistical handling of solar power.

UA teams give heavy thought to paper planes

When asked what made this year's contest different, Ryan Crompton grinned.

"They have to carry this," he said.

He reached into his jacket pocket to reveal what he meant: a small toy soldier.

This year's "Taking Flight Design Challenge" - a paper-plane contest - required participants to incorporate the payload of a small soldier.

Monday's competition was part of the University of Arizona's Engineers Week. It's a nationally observed event in its 60th year and meant to spotlight engineers' contributions to society.

UA students from several engineering clubs competed in the event, which involved designing and building paper airplanes. The students were given two pieces of paper and tools such as scissors, tape, paper clips and tape measures. While it may sound like a piece of cake to make a paper plane fly, designing it to fly the farthest is a bigger challenge.

This year, other challenges were added as well: Only one student was allowed to see the memo detailing the rules, while only two other group members were allowed to test designs. Windy...
