Memorial University CSME Student Chapter held the first annual MUN CSME Design Competition
On March 31, the Memorial University CSME Student Chapter held its debut public event - the first annual MUN CSME Design Competition.
The event began with a meet and greet, where presenters socialized with attendees over refreshments. Following the meet and greet, six teams of senior engineering students presented their design projects to an audience of professors, professionals and fellow students.
With excellent showings from all the competing teams, judges selected “Micro-Hydraulic Arm Design and Development” as the winning project. This project consisted of a 3D-printed robotic arm, designed and fabricated by Nathan Ash, Kyle Doody, Landon Fisher and Nicholas Martin. The arm was controlled by a joystick and hydraulic mechanisms, with a live demonstration lifting a whiteboard eraser.
The winning team was awarded a monetary prize, and commemorated with an entry on the MUN CSME Design Competition plaque, to be mounted in the S. J. Carew Building.
The MUN CSME Student Chapter is very grateful for the financial support of the Canadian Society of Mechanical Engineers, as well as the financial support and guidance of the Memorial University's Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, and thrilled by the success of its first event, and looks forward to many more.
