Projects by senior industrial engineering students at Rutgers University, including Raymond Sarlo, of Hillsborough, aimed at solving "real world" problems will be presented Dec. 7.
The presentation of the students' projects caps a program that serves as a learning tool for graduating seniors, as well as "talent display" for companies looking for new industrial engineers. Students work in teams to design and implement solutions; they then explain and demonstrate the solutions to fellow classmates, faculty and industry representatives.
Sarlo, working with fellow engineering students Yun Jun Chung, Arda Erzin and Adrian Poltorak, designed an oil pipeline inspection system that detects defects and relays the location and severity to a monitoring station. It also analyzes the nature of the defect to determine the best time to repair it before a critical failure occurs.
The presentation will be held from 8:15 .m. to 12:30 p.m. Dec. 7 in the first floor lobby and lecture hall, CoRE Building, 96 Frelinghuysen Road, Busch Campus, Piscataway(Parking available in lot 64 at end of Brett Road).
