Biosystems Engineering Design Project Showcase
2010 Biosystems Design Project Showcase was held on April 15, 2010.
Every year, teams of Biosystems Engineering students, enrolled in the two-semester biosystems design capstone experience, BE 485/487, develop, evaluate, and select design alternatives in order to solve real-world problems. The projects are diverse, but each reflects systems thinking by integrating interconnected issues impacting the problem, including critical biological constraints. The engineering design process is documented in a detailed technical report. The project designs are then presented to engineering faculty and a review panel of licensed professional engineers for evaluation.
The 2010 showcase was held on April 15, 2010, at the Kellogg Center. Six teams presented the following projects:
- Nestle Aseptic Filler
- Integrated Anaerobic Digester and Treatment Wetlands for Pasture Based Dairy Farms
- Determining Restriction Potential and Engineering Alternatives for Carcinogenic Substances
- Design for Improving Air Exchange in Potato Storage
- Sustainable Urban Detroit Goat Farm
- Pilot Bioengineering for Stabilization of the Red Cedar River
