EPA Senior Design Team Poster Session

The EPA P3 Senior Design team composed of 4 Industrial and Systems Engineering and 3 Biosystems Engineering students (co-advised by Dr. Blersch and I) presented their posters in Shelby Engineering to the ISE Alumni Council as well as their peers on Friday May 29th. Their counterparts in Biosystems Engineering also successfully defended the project before a panel of faculty on the same morning at CASIC. Good job to all and congratulations on their graduation!
