Thanks for joining us at Innovation Showcase


Fall 2022 featured project

Jacob Tarajkowski, Marco Torres, Benjamin Turner

Degree: Mechanical engineering systems
Course: EGR 402
Sponsor: US Marine Corps 3rd Marine Expeditionary Force

This team’s mission is to develop a joint-force, Universal Pod Loader, or UPL, capable of loading the HMAR, MSN and PATRIOT pods onto a CH-53 Super Stallion, VF-22 Osprey and CH-47 Chinook rotary wing aircraft that requires just two people to operate. Safety, environmental responsibility and affordability will be at the forefront of the design. They will achieve this goal by producing a purely mechanical system that will use off-the-shelf components to streamline production and keep costs to a minimum.

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!
