Mechatronics engineering senior projects will be one of the highlights of the annual MTSU Department of Engineering Technology Open House and scholarship awards ceremony from 3 to 5 p.m. Thursday, April 28.

The open house is moving this year to the Tennessee Room of the James Union Building, 516 Alma Mater Drive. The public and campus community are invited.

The mechatronics students' projects include two "Skittles Sorters" and two mechanical wipe boards programmed to write words or draw an image by students.

In addition to poster presentations with hands-on projects, student work on display will include the solar boat, Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) and lunar rover. Student awards for the 2015-16 academic year will be presented.

Refreshments will be served and free T-shirts available while they last.
