Engineering Expo 2023

Date / Time

April 21, 2023

12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


UIC Dorin Forum


Undergraduate seniors in engineering have the chance each year to show their creativity, ingenuity, and innovative spirit to the entire UIC community — and the city of Chicago.

Most students begin in the Senior Design course, a two-semester sequence that allows seniors to gather all the knowledge and skills they’ve acquired at UIC Engineering and put them to work to solve a real-world design problem.

The projects our seniors take on range from the practical to the fantastic. Recent projects have explored creating biodiesel from coffee grounds, building devices to improve surgery, designing an HVAC system for a four-story building, conducting traffic analyses for Chicago’s major highways, and recommending musical selections for people via facial-recognition technology.

All projects are on display at our annual Engineering Expo, a conference-style event where students showcase their work to peers, faculty members and panels of judges from Chicago’s professional community.

The event is free and open to both the public and the UIC community. We hope to see you there!
