    The purpose of this project is to design and construct a cob structure located in the Crum Woods. The structure would serve as a place of meditation and contemplation where the occupants could have the opportunity to ...
  • Eberle, Jimmy; Johnson, Matt (2018)
    With the widespread commercial availability ofXY table systems, the use of 3D printers and CNC machines that rely on the underlying machinery has expanded. This project aims to take the same base technology and use it ...
  • Jansen, Andrew; Yeung, Chung Yuen Brandon (2018)
    The purpose of this project was to modify the Swarthmore fuel-cell vehicle in preparation for the 2018 Americas Shell Eco-Marathon. The Shell Eco-Marathon challenges high school and college students to design fuel efficient ...
  • Huchra, Harry (2018)
    I worked with Professor Maggie Delano to design and prototype a wearable bioimpedance monitor to help patients at risk for congestive heart failure (CHF) monitor their condition. According to the CDC over 5.7 million ...
  • Giordano, Emma (2018)
    For my senior design project, I looked to create a collapsible, folding outdoor structure that incorporates the mechanics of structural and mechanical engineering that implements the architectural and aesthetic elements ...
  • Ganapati, Vidya; Robey, Alex (2018)
    Fourier Ptychographic Microscopy (FPM) is a computational imaging technique that iteratively stitches together low-resolution, variably-lit images in Fourier space to produce a high-dimensional image. Unlike conventional ...
