NSPE-VT members are invited to attend the presentation of senior class capstone engineering design projects of senior students in the Vermont Technical College Architectural Engineering Technology program on Wednesday, May 3. The presentations will take place on the Randolph Center campus (in Conant Building Room 102, known affectionately as "The Pit") from 3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Attendees are encouraged to ask questions at the conclusion of the presentations and provide words of advice to the students as they prepare to enter the workforce. If you plan to attend or have questions about the presentations, please contact Scott Sabol, P.E., via email.
This year's students will make a presentation on two distinct projects. The first team involves students Alex Coyle, Ryder Lalomia, Matt Korpics, and Levi Wetherald. They are completing the structural engineering design of a research lab facility in Boise, Idaho. The building is the basis for a competition among HVAC students (the ASHRAE student competition). The second team involves students Allyssa Downs, Jeremy Hammond, and Samone Sturkey who undertook a more open-ended project. They investigated issues of importance to Vermont and the nation in the architectural engineering realm, and then focused on a primary area of investigation. Their focus ended up being a potential partial solution to the Vermont homeless population issue.
Each team will discuss the goals of the project, the specifics of their engineering systems, issues they considered, plus costs, and other related information. Access more information about the projects here.
