Global Perspectives in Engineering

ENGR 497-003 Special Topics

Dr. Tony Songer is teaching/managing the Global Perspectives in Engineering (ENGR 497-003) course next Fall.  It’s an interdisciplinary effort that involves traveling to Bogota, Columbia the week before Fall semester (August 10-18).  During the visit, students will be visiting Columbian engineering firms and identifying specific problems/projects for student teams to address upon returning to BSU.

They currently have two Columbian companies committed to participating: a data management/artificial intelligence company and a dairy/food processing company.  Both have interesting problem areas for Mechanical Engineering.  Topics for potential student projects include autonomous vehicles/service robots/voice recognition/drones/natural language processing/production-process management.

WHO? Open to all engineering undergraduate students
COST? $1,000 + credits + airfare
SCHOLARSHIP? $500 per participant (10) and $300 in four competitive scholarships

The goal is to have 10 COEN students participate. Space is limited, so register now!
