April 25 engineering technology event exhibits students’ work

The general public and MTSU community are invited to the sixth annual Engineering Technology Open House and Awards Ceremony.

The department will celebrate the work performed by its students Wednesday, April 25, from 3 until 5 p.m. in the Tom H. Jackson Building’s Cantrell Hall.

There will be student poster presentations along with some of the student experimental vehicles and projects on display outside, including the Baja, moon buggy and Formula SAE. Awards will be presented at 3:30. Dr. Charles Perry, chair of the Russell Chair of Manufacturing Excellence, will be master of ceremonies.

Perry’s research project, the Honda station wagon that has the prototype wheel-hub motor plug-in hybrid retrofit kit on both rear wheels, also will be on display.

Parking will be limited around the Tom Jackson Building. Visitors are encouraged to park in the South Rutherford Boulevard lot and ride the Raider Xpress shuttle into the campus core to reach the Jackson building, which is located next to Voorhies Engineering Technology.
