KUDOS-April 2006

April 01, 2006
NJIT Students Take First and Third Place in ASME Mechanical Engineering CompetitionNJIT continued its run of success at the annual American Society of Mechanical Engineers Regional Student Conference on April 1, 2006 at Fairleigh Dickinson University. For the eighth time in the last eleven years, NJIT mechanical engineering students captured first place in the National Student Design Contest. The design involved the development of a prototype device for cast fishing for a quadriplegic using sip and puff technology. The winning team of John Kurdyla and Alejandro Perez will represent ASME Region II at the International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE) in Chicago in November. NJIT's team of Eric Jakubik and Eric Shapiro also honored the university with a third-place finish in the contest. >>
