Senior engineering majors make projects

Gerad Lieb, Greg Ohnemus, Luke Walmer and Ben Hockman have spent many nights in front of computers in Pearson Hall designing their senior engineering project for Smiths Detection.


 

Smiths Detection works to design threat detection equipment and x-rays for airport security. The company’s x-ray has had recent problems with alignment, so the group is focusing their project on the creation of a conveyer belt for a smaller version x-ray scanner.

“We’re trying to correct the problem and prevent it from misaligning,” Ohnemussaid.

Using SolidWorks, a 3-D computing and drafting program, the team is able to do just that by designing the project before they start building, though they plan to build their prototype within the upcoming weeks, Walmer said.


Their project is a part of the six-credit capstone course MEEG 0401 “Senior Design” for mechanical engineering that divides students into 22 teams complete design-related tasks for a company. Advisors try to make the teams as diverse as possible by making sure the students’ experience levels and GPAs vary.


Michael Keefe, an engineering professor and advisor to the program, said after students meet with sponsors on the first day of class, each team ranks which company they would like to work for. Based on their interests and rankingsFree Web Content, the five advisors place the teams with a company and they begin their projects.
