StormBot

Student-built robo-inspector fends off flooding, erosion

Purchasing a $60,000 video robot to inspect stormwater pipes didn’t fit into the budget for one Pennsylvania municipality, so officials turned to students in Penn State's Philadelphia regional engineering degree. They delivered Stormbot on time and way, way under budget.
Great Valley Design Expo

First engineering class presents at Penn State Great Valley's Design Expo

Eight undergraduate Penn State engineering students presented their senior capstone projects to a crowd of 50 guests at the inaugural Design Expo on the Penn State Great Valley campus in Malvern on Wednesday evening. This is the first class of students to graduate from Penn State with a degree in general engineering with a multidisciplinary engineering design specialization, thanks to a partnership among the Abington, Brandywine and Great Valley campuses.
