Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
The School of Engineering Technology and Computing at RCC Institute of Technology recently hosted an Electronics Showcase for the graduating class of the Bachelor of Technology Degree Program. Four group projects were presented to faculty, fellow students and a selection of industry professionals. The Showcase was followed by an awards ceremony.
The Electronics Showcase is a presentation of the projects that graduating students complete as a requirement of graduation. Each team of 2 or 3 students plans, researches, designs and implements a complex electronics, computer or network-related project over a period of two terms (8 months). Students apply the technical and troubleshooting skills, theoretical knowledge and presentations to these projects in order to attract potential employers and create production-ready products.
The Showcase presented a diverse group of projects:
Motion Connect Glove: a glove that uses a flex sensor to detect the bend in a finger, and converts the value to voltage by a microcontroller.
Equilibrium: a robot that self balances on two wheels by moving its wheels in the opposite direction in which it is falling.
Tri-Force^3: a hologram cube that displays data from the user’s phone while it is being charged.
Biopotential Amplifier: an all-in-one Bio-potential amplifier designed to be a front-end amplifier to simplify product design in the Electroencephalogram, Electrocardiogram and Electromyography field.
Students demonstrated their fully functioning projects to representatives from the following businesses:
Veridin Systems Canada Inc.
Total Meter Services Inc.
Promobility Progressive Wireless Solutions
The students received glowing reports and interviews have already been set up for potential job opportunities. The Showcase allows students to create viable connections to the Electronics Industry and related fields prior to graduation. Join the School of Engineering Technology and Computing in congratulating the graduating class of the Bachelor of Technology Degree Program. The Electronics Showcase was an exciting preview into the bright futures of these students.
