Five Engineering seniors completing the Saint Michael’s College-University of Vermont 3+2 Program on Friday, April 26, presented their Senior Capstone Projects at the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences Engineering Design Night.

These year-long projects involve teams of students working on applications proposed by local businesses, public services, or university research groups.

At the lively poster session held in the Silver Maple Ballroom at the Dudley Davis Center on the University of Vermont’s campus, teams of students presented their work to an appreciative audience that crowded around the posters and displays, including Saint Michael’s Professors Lloyd Simons, Barbara O’Donovan, and Zsu Kadas. The Saint Michael’s graduates and their projects are:
