Students from the College of Engineering's eight academic departments presented their spring projects during an "Innovation in Engineering" session Tuesday, part of the annual IGNITE Innovation Showcase. In-person and virtual showcase events continue through Friday, with Thursday's events focusing on food innovation and Friday's on innovation in music.
