2010 PROJECTS

Mission Statement:

Characterize the bowel sounds in premature infants (neonates) using signal processing in an effort to aid in FDA approval for a prototype stethoscope. 

Mission Statement:

The mission of this project was to develop a way to more efficiently scrub carbon dioxide from the flue gas produced by coal fired powered plant. 

Mission Statement:

To research, develop, and create an energy efficient ground source het pump utilizing a solar collector to support the heating and cooling of buildings.
