Top Projects Named at Senior Design Expo
Three projects by students from the Lee College of Engineering were judged to be the best at the recent Industrial Senior Design Expo. During the event, project teams presented their completed projects and mid-project design posters.
Providing students with an innovative, hands-on learning experience, the Industrial Senior Design Program is educating engineering students, supporting industry partners and benefiting the State of North Carolina. The program teaches students how to apply their years of math, science, and engineering knowledge to solve the unique problems presented by many progressive North Carolina companies. The Lee College of Engineering encourages multi-disciplinary projects that involve engineering and technology solutions in the disciplines of mechanical, electrical, computer, systems, environmental and civil engineering.
N.C. Humanities Council Moves to Center City
The North Carolina Humanities Council (NCHC) will move its administrative offices to Charlotte in early 2015, to take advantage of what its leaders believe are new and exciting opportunities for organizational development and collaborations in the state’s largest city. Effective Jan. 31, 2015, the council’s new offices will be in UNC Charlotte's Center City building.
Jerry Coughter, executive director of UNC Charlotte Center City, said the NCHC will be a welcome addition to the facility. "UNC Charlotte Center City has been essential to supporting the University’s broader mission of community engagement, urban research and contributing to the economic development of the region. I anticipate the North Carolina Humanities Council will develop a broad partnership with our College of Liberal Arts & Sciences and will help us grow our lifelong learning opportunities that we offer across the region."
NCHC is a statewide nonprofit agency that provides advocacy, grant-making and activities to support understanding of the humanities, especially literature, history, art, music and philosophy. It has been in Greensboro since its inception in 1972. Among the programs funded by NCHC are the "Let’s Talk About It" book discussion series, Roads Scholars speakers series and Museum on Main Street exhibit in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution.
