Senior Design Team Competes in Rhode Island

One of our Biosystems Engineering Senior Design teams recently learned that they are one of three teams invited to compete in the oral portion of the AGCO National Student Design Competition. The oral presentations will define final placements and are scheduled for Monday, June 30 during the ASABE Annual International Meeting in Providence, Rhode Island. Their invitation came as the result of an earlier design paper competition. The team members (now graduated) are Erin Byers, Kimberly Geary, Boone Hillenbrand and Andrew Smith. They were mentored by Dr. Al Womac; and their project is entitled "Biomas Automated Densification Device - B.A.D.D.!"

The purpose of the AGCO Student Design Competition, is to encourage undergraduate students to participate in the basic design of an engineering project useful to agriculture and related areas and to provide an arena of professionalism in which students can experience peer recognition of a well conceived and executed design project.

The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) is an educational and scientific organization dedicated to the advancement of engineering applicable to agricultural, food, and biological systems.
