On May 5, Professor John Baras’s (ECE/ISR) capstone course ENES 489P "Hands-On Systems Engineering Projects" held its end-of-the-semester Undergraduate Systems Engineering Design Conference. Ten teams of undergraduate students from multiple engineering disciplines presented the results of their model-based systems engineering design projects. The presentations and projects were judged by a distinguished panel of industry professionals:

Aastha Verma, Chief Scientist, Booz Allen Hamilton (ISR alumna, MSSE 2003, BS EE 1997)
Don York, Technical Fellow and Senior Systems Engineer, TASC, an Engility Company
