The Southern Polytechnic College of Engineering and Engineering Technology (SPCEET) Senior Design Expo showcases the best capstone engineering design projects across the college's six departments and disciplines. Projects featured teams from the following disciplines:
- Civil and Environmental Engineering
- Electrical and Computer Engineering
- Engineering Technology
- Industrial and Systems Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering
Throughout the semester, students have designed, built, tested, and presented innovative projects that address real-world issues and directly impact our community. Prizes were awarded for the top three projects. Judges were members of the college's various Industry Advisory Boards (IABs), other industry partners, and faculty.
Congratulations to the Mechanical Engineering team, Flywheel Battery: Ashley Wynn, Britt Cumbee, John Redd, and Stephen Taylor who won the first-place award in Fall 2022 for developing a Flywheel Battery system. “The Flywheel Battery Design team’s device provides a clean, efficient and cost-effective energy storage system by transferring excess energy resulting from the flywheel's inertia to a low-cost battery, that can be later utilized,” said Val Sooklal, faculty advisor to the group.
Second place went to another Mechanical Engineering team for their construction of Continuously Variable Transmission 2.0 and third place to a Robotics and Mechatronics team for their Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (MANTA).
We are excited to expand this event to further engage our community, industry leaders, and dedicated alumni. We look forward to our next competition on May 2 in the Convocation Center on the Kennesaw Campus.
Fall 22 Senior Design Expo Information
SPCEET's Fall 22 Senior Design Expo will be held on Tuesday, November 29th, in the Marietta Events Center from 11 AM-2 PM. See their work, ask questions, and join us for the awards to see who walks away with the best of the best!
This event is open to all students, parents, staff, faculty, potential and existing donors, industry partners, and the general public.

About the Senior Design Experience
SPCEET's related senior design two-course capstone sequence culminates the undergraduate engineering education at KSU. Students learn and implement design concepts for products/systems from concept to market.
What does the Senior Design Experience involve?
- Manufacturability and Customer Requirements
- Environmental and Human Factors
The senior design capstone course allows engineering students to apply the breadth of engineering coursework and analytical skillsets acquired over four years to develop an efficient and practical engineering design solution.
