Spring 2022 featured projects

Sage Furman

Degree: Robotics and autonomous systems
Course: EGR 314 – Wearable robotics
Team: 106

The Autohood is a low-cost mechatronic solution that predicts rainy weather conditions. The device includes various sensors to predict rainfall allowing the device to warn the user in the form of a phone notification and deploy a sheltering hood device.

Project: Fluid-powered vehicle challenge project

Degree: Mechanical systems engineering
Course: EGR 402 – Professional design project II
Sponsor: National Fluid Power Association/ASU

Students of the fluid-powered vehicle challenge project are putting the finishing touches on their human-powered trike that includes an integrated hydraulic power system. They will eventually compete against other universities at the Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge.


Security Bot

Degree: Information technology
Course: IFT 402 – Information technology capstone II

Information technology students are preparing their security robot meant to provide warehouses with surveillance support including live stream video capabilities and distance detection among many other features.

The Aviation Programs offer degrees that combine academic studies with professional flight and aviation training. State-of-the-art training and simulation facilities promote realistic immersion for an optimal learning experience.


Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS)

The Engineering Projects in Community Service program, known as EPICS, is a national award-winning social entrepreneurship program. Teams design, build and deploy systems to solve engineering-based problems for charities, schools and other not-for-profit organizations.


eProjects (EGR 402)

Professional Design Project II is comprised of students from the BSE engineering program (with concentrations in automotive systems, electrical systems, mechanical systems, and robotics systems) and the BS manufacturing engineering program.


Foundations of Engineering Design II

This course instills an entrepreneurial mindset by vertically integrating a single design project in two consecutive freshmen engineering design classes. Students combine machine skills, electronics and programming into their projects.

Grand Challenges Scholars Program project

Grand Challenges Scholars Program (GCSP)

The Fulton Grand Challenges Scholars Program combines innovative curriculum and cutting-edge research experiences into an intellectual fusion that spans academic disciplines and includes entrepreneurial, global, and service learning opportunities.

Information Technology

Information technology students design and create network architectures, configure and administer complex computer and database systems, create and manage effective websites, or design and process interactive media solutions.

Software Engineering

The software engineering program blends engineering, computing, project leadership and software construction. Students learn how to make creative software solutions to solve global issues. Industry partners sponsor many of these projects, bringing unmatched, real-world experiences into the learning environment.



Students of the SolarSPELL (Solar Powered Educational Learning Library) initiative are confronting the realities of low-resource contexts with an ultra-portable, ruggedized, education-focused digital library, designed to build internet-ready skills in an offline environment.

Innovation Showcase represents more than an event

ASU students in various engineering and technology programs will demonstrate how their projects have the potential to solve real-world problems using skills obtained during their undergraduate and graduate experiences.

Collaborating with industry partners both in the greater metropolitan area and across the globe, students have the opportunity to engineer creative solutions to meet tangible industry and societal needs. With the guidance of industry and faculty mentors, the capstone environment enables a think tank for students to conceptualize, develop, produce and refine new methodologies, inventions and ideas.

Thank you to the sponsors and mentors who support our students!
