Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Systems Engineering:

Mechatronic Vent Hood (CGI Project): The Mechatronic Vent Hood is a device that automatically maintains the quality of air in kitchen environments while cooking. It uses humidity, temperature, and smoke sensors to determine the amount of airflow needed to keep the air clean. The vent fan adjusts automatically to improve air quality without user intervention and the burners will be turned off in the event of a fire.

Aquaponics Greenhouse (CGI project): An aquaponics system is a system that uses fish, algae, or nutrients to provide plants in a greenhouse with the nutrients rather than fertilized dirt. The greenhouse will receive nutrients from the aquaponic tank and the plants will growin a controlled environment. Aquaponics systems are a very good resource for growing food without the use of chemicals and can be used in environments where plants generally cannot be grown year round. However, these systems have proven to be labor intensive and not easily operable or controlled. Our aim is to use sensor feedback to control plant water level, nutrients, and temperature inside the greenhouse and aquarium.

2016 IEEE Region 5 Robotics Competition Entry (national competition)

Smart House Lock: The idea behind this project is to design a controlled system that can communicate viaBluetooth with your smartphone and wait idly for your commands in order to either unlock orlock a door for you, the customer.

Electric Motorcycle ­ Codename Project ELIE: For this Capstone project, a team of engineers will design and build a motorcycle, poweredexclusively by electricity, that performs as well as comparable gasoline powered motorcycles.To set this project apart from existing electric designs the team will make careful selections forthe components and design around keeping the motor operating at peak efficiency for the power input provided.

Portable Clean Power Generating System: Sometimes you find yourself in areas that don’t have electrical power for your variousdevices. The Earth Sciences department goes into remote locations each summer toconduct research and needs a device to service this need. They use cellphones, laptops andother electrical devices, that are need for research and daily communication. This project isgoing to be able to provide a portable electrical green power supply to fill this need.

Engineering Technology:

Aviation Latch Design: A company in the business of manufacturing special components for outfitting aircraft interiors, provided a project for a team of students, to provide an optimal design for a latch to be used for drawers and cabinet doors in the aircraft. The design must meet the FAA standards, and meet the strength and reliability requirements for the aviation industry. Student team created a simpler design, and explored improving production cost.


SUV Top Cargo Handling: Hauling cargo on the top of an SUV or a Pickup Truck requires strenuous lifting and is fraught with the potential for accidents and injury. A student team recognized that, and designed retractable handling system that would allow loading and unloading the top cargo, at a convenient height

Manufacturing the Future: The goal of project is to build a compact engineering system in order to manufacture a projectile from a standard sheet of paper and test it by propelling it a maximum distance.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

Construction Management and Civil and Construction Engineering

The MS in Construction Management Develops upper level management personnel for the construction industry, while helping students to pass the Certified Professional Constructor (CPC) exam administered by the American Institute of Constructors (AIC).

Information Science

The Department of Information Science seeks to expand human and technical capabilities through information in a world where information is of central importance to personal, organizational, social, political, technical, and economic progress. Information Science makes sense of the data that people gather through information technology. The programs that reside in the Department of Information Science focus on the transformation of data to information and knowledge, to intelligence and application, and on the technologies and systems that store and access the data in ways that impart its meaning.

Systems Engineering

Systems engineering can be broadly defined as the relational, people-oriented engineering profession that brings together all the fields of engineering into a fascinating, big picture perspective. As an example, an engineer, who desires to build a robot, requires knowledge of mechanical, electrical, computer and software engineering. With the addition of wireless and telecommunications capabilities, a team of multiple robots can be coordinated to emulate human teamwork and accomplish a much greater variety of complex operations. As systems become more complex than a robot such as an airplane, a complex telecommunications network, a computer network, or a space shuttle, the knowledge required of engineers becomes quite diverse and encompasses a wide variety of engineering disciplines. Systems Engineers, besides acquiring specialized skills in an Engineering discipline, also acquire the ability to lead a team of engineers with diverse skills and to coordinate and manage the design of large and complex systems.

Research Description By Engineering Research Center

Emerging Analytics Center

The George W. Donaghey Emerging Analytics Center™ (EAC) at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock (UALR) is a research center that houses an energetic group of faculty, researchers, and students performing innovative research in technology, infrastructure and applications for virtual reality, visualization, and interactive technologies. The UALR EAC was founded thanks to a generous grant from the George W. Donaghey Foundation. Its mission is to be a focus of applied research expertise and technology knowledge in the areas of immersive and interactive visualization for complex and big data applied to practical problems in industry, government, and research organizations.

EAC’s Work is centered on interdisciplinary projects and it covers a wide range of topics from the development and use of large-scale one-of-a-kind systems to every day portable technologies such as smart phones, glasses and tablets as well as pioneering applications for these technologies in many disciplines and markets.

EAC is the strategic partner that brings strong applied research expertise in modeling and simulation, visualization, and systems integration through a dynamic team of multidisciplinary UALR faculty, creative research scientists, and motivated students.

EAC’s Team at UALR is focused on a broad mission of innovative economic development for the future of Arkansas and our nation.

UALR Computational Research Center

The UALR Computational Research Center (CRC) is dedicated to the promotion of efficiency, productivity, and accuracy in research through the use of significant and diverse computing resources. No single computing platform, regardless of size, is appropriate for all computational problems, and there are many reasons for this: Some problems are memory bound, some are I/O intensive, while still others are CPU constrained; many researchers work exclusively on UNIX or Linux platforms, others use Microsoft operating systems and applications; some are well versed in programming and have no problem with parallelizing their code, some are more comfortable with point and click out-of-the-box applications, and others simply do not have the time to modify straight code for multi-core/multi-node functionality. Here at the CRC, we are well aware of this diversity within the research community and have built a facility to serve and address the varied computational requirements of this environment. Our offerings are unique to Arkansas and bring a new level of computing capacity and capability to education, corporate, and government research organizations.
