Student teams shine at 2021 Engineering Senior Design Day

Story by
FAMU-FSU Engineering

Engineering Senior Design Day 2021 was a virtual showcase of the engineering skills and talent in FAMU-FSU Engineering’s senior class. Two teams received top honors as Best Overall and Best Abstract awardees, out of the 86 engineering design teams made up of Florida A&M and Florida State university students.

This year’s winners are:

Team 312

Team 312: Delivery Robot (Best Overall Project)Aria Delmar, Jackson DiGiovanna, Joaquim Feit, Anthony Ging, Christian Greeff and Kierra Howard


Team 309

Team 309: Sprinter Optimization (Best Original Abstract)Malique Akbar, Gentry Darkins, Kowe Kadoma and Gabrielle Nelson

The annual event, held virtually this year due to pandemic restrictions, is a marquee event for the joint college. Discipline-specific and multidisciplinary engineering teams tackle challenges with research, collaboration and prototype solutions. Most students take Senior Design over the course of two semesters at the end of their engineering curriculum, with the “capstone project” being a culmination of their academic studies and practical skills. Industry experts, professional engineers and college alumni serve as judges for the corporate-sponsored projects during the day-long Engineering Senior Design Day event each spring.
