Attend Summer 2016 Armour R&D Expo After Kaplan Groundbreaking Ceremony

Have you ever wondered what it takes to develop microphysiological systems, an organ on chip, to study and test procedures on particular organ systems? Or, hoped there was a device that automates a building’s ventilation systems to ensure optimal indoor air quality based on occupants activities? Undergraduate students at Armour College of Engineering have begun answering these questions alongside their faculty mentors as part of the Armour R&D Program. Learn more about these projects and others the students have been working on during summer 2016.

Armour College will be hosting the Summer 2016 Armour R&D Expo 2016 to showcase the work of students who participated in Armour R&D during the summer. A poster expo will take place on Thursday, August 25 at 1 p.m. in the John T. Rettaliata Engineering Center. Refreshments will be provided. If you are interested in attending, RSVP here.

Those attending the groundbreaking ceremony for the Ed Kaplan Family Institute for Innovation and Tech Entrepreneurship in Morton Park can take a short walk east after the ceremony to the REC to experience engineering innovation at Armour.

The Fall 2016 Armour R&D Program is fast approaching, proposals will be accepted from Wednesday, August 24 through Friday, September 2, 2016. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the program by viewing the projects your previously funded peers have been working on. It is also an ideal occasion to network with faculty, Illinois Tech alumni, and corporate partners who will be attending the expo.
