How would you feel about your senior project being showcased ta the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington? Team “FIUAV” brought their autonomous plane with high-definition cameras and full on-board computer to the Museum in April 2012.

The result of two semesters of work from four Mechanical Engineering seniors, this system also went to the AUVSI competition in Madrid.

Beyond this stellar project, the creativity and research of the Mechanical Engineering profession impact health, exploration, manufacturing and technology. Mechanical engineering is critical to space exploration, environmental control, defense, transportation and bioengineering.
