Students in the engineering program at the School of Mines spent both semesters of their senior year working on a final project. And Tuesday was the day to show them off.
The Surbeck Center played host to the annual Senior Design Fair.
More than 200 students worked on the 57 projects on display, encompassing the various engineering disciplines.
Students say they apply all they have learned from their undergraduate career for this final project, and the teamwork will serve them well in starting careers or seeking graduate education.
Plus, showcasing the projects to the public can show what lies ahead for future engineering students.
"It provides insight into what an engineering education provides at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. And so it's just a great way to show the benefits of an engineering education," said Jason Ash, an Associate Professor at the School of Mines.
Projects on display included concrete canoes, unmanned aerial vehicles, steel bridges, and an off - road vehicle.
