Clara Phillips and Hallie Arnott attended the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME) National Design Competition on May 30th 2018, hosted by the CSME 2018 International Congress to present their Capstone design project in both poster and video format.

I am pleased to share that Clara and Hallie won the “Best Poster” award for their work on the “Design of a Low-Cost Transfemoral Prosthesis”  which was completed during their capstone design class along with colleagues Josha Bharadwa, Nicholas Di Ciero and Stavros Fotopoulos.

Congratulations Hallie and Clara!
