The Cornell Cup, presented by Intel, is an embedded design competition created to empower college student teams to become the inventors of the newest innovative applications of embedded technology. The teams can win up to $10,000.

An ECE senior design team has been selected as a finalist in the Cornell Cup Design Competition. This competition, presented by Intel, is an embedded design competition created to empower college student teams to become the inventors of the newest innovative applications of embedded technology.

Students will also be given the opportunity to enhance their resumes and demonstrate their professional design skills, highly sought by today’s companies, as they transform their ideas into a well-planned, robust reality.

The competition will be an annual academic year-long experience culminating in an inspiring two-day summit event May 4-5 at Walt Disney World, where finalist student teams will attend exciting and even entertaining talks, network with leading engineering company sponsors, and ultimately showcase their original innovative entries. The top three finalist entries will win grand prizes set at $10,000, $5,000, and $2,500.

The ECE design team's project is a heads-up display, originally conceived in ECE477 Digital Systems Senior Design in Fall 2011. They are design building a new "Mark II" version for the final competition. The team consists of students Aditya Balasubramanian, Brandon Blaine Gardner, Marcelo Leone, and Nikhil Sureshkumar. They are advised by Dr. Mark Johnson and Professor David Meyer.
