Interesting Work, If You Can Get It

November 27, 2007 :: 5:00 - 6:00 pm


 This lecture describes efforts by the presenter in his role as an industrial advisor to Universities. Challenging and innovative projects assist senior year students to make the transition from student to engineer. The presentation will cover the development and outcome of select student projects: Sky Spirit UAV and the St. Paul Parks Trail Usage System. These projects resulted in increased opportunities for jobs and also patents. The lecture also discusses the motivation by industry for enhanced collaboration with academia in the 21st century.
