Game Engines for Research

Posted Leave a commentPosted in News

Over the summer, we employed some of our undergraduate engineering students to help out with research projects as summer interns. They explored a range of opportunities and a bunch of cutting edge tech and ideas, such as Brain Controlled Interfaces for Design; Gesture-driven CAD and Immersive Prototyping. To enrich their time with the lab, many of […]
