Engineering xChange to be held April 22nd

Engineering students working on virtual reality project

JMU’s Engineering Department will host its annual Madison Engineering xChange on Saturday, April 22nd, to celebrate the projects and accomplishments of undergraduates in the program, as well as the contributions by students to industry and community partners. Aspiring engineers of all academic years will showcase their major project work from the past year during an afternoon exposition, using prototype demonstrations and posters to display their research and innovations. The event enters the third year in its current iteration. The symposium was originally designed exclusively for seniors but was remodeled in 2014 to highlight the efforts of all students in JMU’s award-winning project-based engineering program.

The xChange will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. throughout the Engineering and Geosciences Building. It begins with a keynote speech from Dr. Jerry Benson, the retiring Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, and ends with the announcement of awards for outstanding scholarship. Prior to the afternoon session, junior and senior JMU students will deliver lightning talks of their projects to attract visitors to their exhibits. There are more than 70 project teams in total that plan to feature their work.
