November 30, 2001
The College of Engineering at North Carolina State University announces the Second Annual Freshman Engineering Design Day to be held Wednesday, December 5, in the McKimmon Center, Area #1, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Freshman Engineering Design Day provides a venue for the fall 2001 entering class in the College of Engineering to present the results of their semester-long projects from the Introduction to Engineering and Problem Solving course. Each student team in the course has designed, built and tested a simple engineering project. Examples of projects include a balsa-wood bridge, a webpage, a catapult and a miniature electronic robot. Student teams will present their designs in a "trade show" format, and participate in design competitions. (more)
