APRIL 22, 2022 — Ingenuity was on display in the UTSA Convocation Center yesterday as more than 400 undergraduate engineering students presented their work at the Spring 2022 Tech Symposium.
Hosted by the Margie and Bill Klesse College of Engineering and Integrated Design at UTSA, the Tech Symposium highlighted a culmination of engineering curricula, with students challenged to apply their skills and knowledge to solve real-world problems.
The Tech Symposium teams work together throughout their final year of study to identify a problem and to plan and develop a prototype or system that can address it. In the first semester of this process, the undergraduate students are enrolled in Senior Design I and are required to present a poster highlighting their chosen issue and a concept of how to address it.
In the second semester, the students enroll in Senior Design II and are expected to present working prototypes and/or completed processes. Of this semester’s 100+ project teams, roughly 70 were enrolled in Senior Design II and the remaining 30 in Senior Design I.
