Malott Innovation Awards showcase senior design projects
The Malott Innovation Awards are the culmination of ME463, Purdue's capstone class for seniors in Mechanical Engineering. Teams of students work closely with faculty members to create prototype products, continually refining and improving them using the knowledge from their engineering courses over the last four years. At the end of the semester, the students present their final prototypes to a panel of Purdue ME alumni who work in various industries; this panel selects the top three teams, who all receive cash awards.
The top teams from the Fall 2018 Malott Innovation Awards are:
About the Malott Innovation Awards
The Malott Innovation Awards are supported by an endowment created in 2007 by Thomas J. Malott (BSME '62, HDR '02), to foster an innovation culture among Purdue Mechanical Engineering students. Malott is the former president, CEO and director of Siemens Energy and Automation. His career included executive positions with Parker-Hannifin and the Ransburg Corp., as well as serving on several corporate boards. He was an inaugural member of the Purdue Foundation Development Council and was awarded the Outstanding Mechanical Engineer and Distinguished Engineering Alumnus awards in 1991 from the university.
