Exhausted Dynamics takes top MSE honor at 2019 Capstone Design Expo
The team Exhausted Dynamics takes top MSE honor at 2019 Capstone Design Expo, held Tuesday, April 23, at McCamish Pavilion. 236 teams from 11 different schools and programs and three colleges competed in the Expo.
MSE had 18 teams competing, including three interdisciplinary teams. Exhausted Dynamics, consisting of Charles Caliendo, Eric Fitzgerald, SeungMin Lee, Jacob Lloyd, Heyinn Rho and Andreas Robertson received top MSE honors and a $1000 prize. Their project, sponsored by PAI, made structural and material changes to automotive exhaust manifolds, a common component that commonly fails early, effecting the ability of trucking companies to meet delivery deadlines.
The 2019 Prize for the Best Overall project award went to SmartSoil, a team of mechanical engineering students who developed an indoor, user-friendly composting device that uses worms to produce nutrient rich compost.
