Electronics & Computer Engineering students apply their tech talent, Dec. 15
Release Date: December 5, 2017
A robot arm that plays chess. An automated solar-powered composter. An autonomous lawn mower. These are just a few of the innovative new projects designed and developed by Camosun’s graduating Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology students to be featured at their year-end “Capstone Symposium,” at the Babcock Canada Interaction Lab, Interurban campus, 10am to 2pm, Friday, December 15.
The annual Capstone Symposium showcases the achievements of Camosun’s senior electronics and computer engineering technology students who have partnered with local businesses, industry and government agencies to develop real-life software solutions to their business challenges.
Camosun students, employees and the general public are invited to drop by the event on December 15, meet the students and check out the exciting finished innovations developed for local industry partners and employers.
Other projects on display include: a Globo dynamic light display, a motion synthesizer for creating sound effects based on movements, an analog synthesizer, a solar panel simulator, an automated product tester and a complete redesign of the actuator and controller for St. Andrew’s Church two-octave clarion chimes which have not rung since 1965.
“This student-business partnership benefits everyone,” says Program Chair Alan Duncan. “The students gain valuable, applied career experience, while our business partners gain solutions to specific problems they’ve identified.”
Camosun’s Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology program offers leading-edge education and training in both hardware and software design. Students develop the skills necessary to analyse problems and develop solutions, using a combination of both hardware and software. Graduates of this program can choose to work with some leading-edge local companies whose products are sought after worldwide, or chose to enter our engineering bridge program that transfers to UVIC.
The annual Capstone Symposium is supported by the Camosun College School of Trades and Technology and the Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of BC (ASTTBC).
