Annual Engineering Design Conference

Students discuss their projects

Date and Time

Friday, August 5, 2016 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM


Kennedy Hall of Engineering & Keller Engineering Laboratories


Senior engineering students in GVSU's Seymour and Esther Padnos College of Engineering and Computing will display their talents and expertise at the annual Engineering Design Conference on Friday, August 5 from 1 until 4:30 p.m. at the Kennedy Hall of Engineering and Keller Engineering Lab Building on the Pew Campus in Grand Rapids. 

The day culminates in the Order of the Engineer ceremony, which is a special commencement ritual for Engineering students. The graduates earn their degrees later in the year than the traditional spring ceremony because they must complete a year-long co-op experience. In the ceremony, each student receives an iron ring, placed on the little finger of the working hand, which symbolizes bridging the step between training and experience. The practice started in Canada and is firmly established in the U.S.
