    More than 350 University of Arizona seniors will present their final capstone team projects on May 6 at Engineering Design Day 2014, which is organized and sponsored each year by the UA College of Engineering. Many B.S. in OSE students will be among them, culminating years of hard work in these real-world interdisciplinary exercises.

    All — especially fellow undergrads — are invited to the showcase. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., 64 unique projects will dot the Student Union Memorial Center North Ballroom and the central Mall, competing for over $14,000 in prize money. Subjects range from unmanned aerial vehicles with search and rescue applications to border surveillance systems camoflauged as saguaro cacti to robotic lawnmowers.
