On April 20-21, Utah Valley University students will showcase their engineering and robotic technical skills at the annual Engineering Technology Fair.
From 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. each day, the public can see the student’s projects in action. The Fair will be held in the UVU Computer Science building.
Hands-on projects will be on display from the Engineering Technology Department’s Mechatronics major as well as Electrical Automation and Robotic major.
“Our students put a great deal of work into these projects. They’ve invested a lot of time to create these projects and it shows what they have learned while at UVU,” said David Adams, Department Chair of UVU Engineering Technology.
Projects to be presented include; a candy sorter by color, dancing water to music, palletizing program, and car wash simulator.
Many local employers also attend, looking for their next great hire. “Our students have approximately a 98 percent hire rate, and they secure great jobs with very good salaries starting at $25 an hour and up, and so we have people come from all over the state to hire these students,” Adams said.
